Olympic amazement

Sure everyone in the world is thinking about and watching the Olympics, but I can't help myself, it's amazing.

The swimming records that are being blown away are unheard of and are crazy. I think Phelps beat his own world record by more almost 2 full seconds. Can you imagine if all of a sudden the 100M sprint were broken by a full second and was suddenly below 9 seconds?

Currently I'm watching the men's gymnasts shocking everyone by being a true Silver medal contender, and they were in first after 3 rotations. Would the Hamm twins have been enough to put this team over the top? Probably not. The Chinese scores are so high, but I think they would have made it even more interesting. Probably the most amazing thing I've seen with the gymnasts was the Chinese men on the floor. The show of upper body strength in the way they would lift themselves was insane.
