As we all know, the Olympics is (are?) here! I do love the Olympics and I have been watching TV pretty much ten hours a day. Sorry for the lack of posts on here lately, but I'm sure Olympics is high on your agenda as well, rather than an education blog!

It's nice to have a break from work, revision and put your mind off the upcoming exam results (16th and 23rd August for A-Levels and GCSEs respectively).

I am a keen supporter of Great Britain and South Korea (having lived in the UK for 13 years, yet having Korean blood). There seem to have been a few controversies along the way, especially with South Korea, most notably Park Tae-Hwan's disqualification for an alleged false start, which was eventually overruled. Wang Ki-Chun's decision that went against him in the semi-final of the Judo.

And the worst one: Shim A-Lam's major disappointment that left her crying for over an hour on the piste due to a controversial decision against her in the Fencing semi-final. She had one second left to hold onto a 5-5 draw, and the timer went to zero, only to be reset to one again. Then, it seemed that the one second was over, only for the timer to take an absolute age to count down to zero, by which time the German opponent had hit her, and overtaken her 6-5 to advance to the finals. Controversial to say the least.

All is not lost though, as South Korea have claimed 3 gold medals (1 in Shooting, 1 in Archery and 1 in Judo) and lie 4th as I write this post. Great Britain are yet to earn a gold medal, but with some major events approaching, it is not going to last long.

I love the Olympics! (There probably will not be many posts during the time of the Olympics. Sorry everyone!)
