Olympic Games - Dutch pride

Some deceptions with swimming, but the Dutch athletes were very successful in the water sports disciplines this weekend: Gold and Silver in rowing (double sculls Women, eights women), Silver in sailing (Yingling women). And the Dutch slalom kayakers also performed outstanding: Ariane Herde and Robert Bouten both made it to the finals!

Update 18-08-08:
The Olympic games are a good excuse for some (harmless) chauvinism and nationalism ;-) This morning the Dutch success- story continued with another Silver medal in sailing (470 women) and Gold in cycling (Marianne Vos won the cycling points race). Dutch women are very strong!
