Fighting is easy, holding grudges is easy however neither will make you happy.

Choosing to forgive and love is far more rewarding.

@Jeff Lee.

Japan is not a skateboarfing super power, not even close.

There are good Japanese skaters, and Yuto san is respected on the international scene but the reason they look so strong at the olympics is purely because of the heat.

Nobody skates in the heat of the day, world class skaters these days typically skate in giant warehouses, skating at night is very popular in summer to avoid the heat of the day.

The Japanese skaters obviously trained in the heat and won medals for being good skaters with olympic level heat tolerance.

I posted before that we would see very different results if the events were held at night time but mods deleted the comment.

Ageed. Well done to both Japan and Poland, especially with the belarusian activist being found hanged in a park yesterday.

There's clearly something very bad going down there at the moment.

The gov deserves these numbers, especially mid olympics.

If the numbers stayed the same throughout the olympics they would claim how well they did and give each other bonuses, now they have to face up to a very different reality.

The Olympic hangover is going to be a big one.

With the way life has become for the average worker, if you take away the alcohol you will find yourself with a riot on your hands.

Alcohol has become the lubricant that keeps the machine from falling apart.

I always had the impression that skateboarding was born of this free, punk, anti-establishment culture. I can't see how it fits in with the corporate greedfest that is the modern Olympics, however skilful the participants are.

Pre energy drink sponsorship that were true

The answer for those of us with children in this situation is to build a high level of self confidence into our children by meeting their emotional needs every single day.

Kids who have self confidence always succeed, to the point where being different actually gives them an advantage in social situations.
