Go well New Zealand's 198 athletes at the London Games

Yes, it's hard ot believe that a tiny South Pacific nation of under 4.5 million people can send 198 athletes to the Olympic Games in London. It shows how sports mad we are. Over the next two weeks many people will be late for work, because they have stayed up half the night. No doubt some will face angry bosses who will be cranky because they too have been bitten by the Olympic bug, Oh well, it makes a change from the sad news coming out of so many other places. Isn't this what it is all about; for a time the trouble of the world are placed to one side? Ok folks--- enjoy the respite, then---well---God alone knows what awaits us after the two weeks are up.
