2008 Beijing Olympics - 1st Gold Goes to Czech Hello everyone who follows 2008 Beijing Olympics, Are you excited about the summer Olympics as much as I am? I just wanted to brag a little and let you all know, that 1st gold medal goes to the shooter Katerina Emmons of the Czech Republic. I'm really proud that my countrywoman was able to harvest gold that soon. I also hope that the United States wins the most medals since I live here and my wife is an American. I think that Chinese athletes will be a strong rival to the USA because they are very disciplined by nature and during this time they are extremely motivated by pride since they are hosting the games. The Russians and Canada will be closely behind them in my opinion. What do you think?
