'The Thrill of Victory..."

Reuters posts its idea of "Top 10 moments of the Beijing Olympics."

Whaddya think?

Memorable moments from a part-time watcher include the women's sprinting competitions - the Jamaican contenders were awesome to watch. Women's gymnastics were fun but painful as the judges demonstrated an inability for unbiased judging. The men's gymnastics were simply amazing - the strength, grace, poise and power were mind-boggling. The women's volleyball was fun, but the whole dump-mom's-ashes thing and the follow-up interview made me wonder what those two were doping with.

Overall, the post-performance interviews were incredibly weak and disappointing, but except for Karolyi's outrage at the judging farce, most of the commentary was a total waste.
