A few days ago, “The Greatest Show on Earth” started. Yes, I am talking about the XXIX Olympiad hosted by Beijing.
Whilst watching the wonderful Opening Ceremony, I let out a loud cheer for the 4 athletes that Laos has sent.
I read that the Lao Olympic Chief Somphou Phongsa has said that “Medal chances for our 2 Swimmers and 2 Runners were slim”, but I think that the fact that we are on the World Stage is great, and I think that we should all support our brave quartet.
“One World, One Dream“, the slogan for these games is very much true.
Our Olympians are:
Ms Vilayphone Vongphachane & Mr Thepphithak Chindavong the
50m Freestyle Swimmers
Mr Souksavanh Tonphithak & Ms Philaylack Sackpaseuth the
Sokdee Der Muang Lao!
