Sarah Jones of Australia tried to post the following to the list, but had
some trouble getting through. From email@example.com:
>>> Chuck, maybe the question should be did anyone NOT see Kerri Strug
>>> clinch the gold tonight?
>Well, I didnt see this, but here in Australia, a lot of people are talking
about OUR HERO for the Olympics.
>Our Equestrian team has just won the gold medal for the horse stuff. Many
of you may not realize it, but the South Australian in that Gillian Roulton
twize fell from her horse. She suffered a broken collar bone, 2 broken ribs
and a cracked shoulder and she twize got back on her horse (Peppermint
Grove) and finished the course. She was not even half way through the course
when these things happened to her.
>She finished the course, was taken to hospital and in that time never took
any pain killers.
>The team has gotten the gold for the 2nd olympics in a row. I think Gillian
has just as much courage and determination as anyone. I am also planning on
telling my Cubs about this on Tuesday night.
>I mentioned this, as after all, I dont know how much coverage anyone else
is getting of other nations winners. (if it is anything like ours, it will
be very little, unless the Aussies are in the same heat etc.)
