Second Sport Update!

Jarryd Hughes

I am sure most countries behave like this. In fact, I’ve been in a number of different countries during an Olympic Games, and know they do.

However. Australia picked two male athletes to turn into “superstars”, and nobody else on our Olympic Team mattered. One snowboarder was featured nonstop for MONTHS before these Games, but he did not win a medal in his event today.

A *different* Australian just won the silver medal in Snowboard Cross, but he wasn’t the “right” winner. Even as I type this, they’re interviewing the guy they picked to win a medal, even though he crashed.

This is our third medal, and second silver so far – not bad for a beach country not good at the snow stuff!

So. Here’s to Jarryd Hughes!
