Stop crying over silver

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 2 August, 2012 - 8:24 AM
Emily Seebohm has been the very public face of Australia's disappointment with Olympic silver.

Three time Olympian Lisa Curry wants Australia to take a deep breath and realise that winning any medal at the Olympics is a great achievement. Lisa spoke to Steve Mills to try and make some sense of the doom saying surrounding Australia's swimming performances.

  • I agree mate. If they are not good enough they should suck it up & try harder next time or retire or get a real job - lets see how they whinge then!!!

  • I have so far found this Olympic's a bit "surreal". A lot of the younger athletes that are winning medals just don't seem that happy. It seems like it's gold or nothing. I could not ever imagine myself sad because I won a silver or bronze medal instead of a gold. Just to be able to be at the Olympics would be such an honour and privilege and any medal would be a bonus. Do these athletes realise that this is it, meaning they are the best on the planet and there is no higher level of competition? I think they need a reality check!

  • I think it's a very dissapointing display for us, the Aussie public. So they were'nt quick enough. Big deal, that's sport. Some you win, some you lose.To all the swimmers who were sobbing/making excuses - Remember the Olympic ethos: Be humble in victory and gracious in defeat. I personally found it very cringe-worthy.
