Gaaahahaaa…I frickin’ love the Olympics! Rafa looks utterly handsome and extraordinarily fidgety in the trophy ceremony. Djokovic has the most amazing trackie bottoms and looks really quite moved by the whole thing. Awesome all the way through! Can’t wait for it to start!!!
The Starace match was nerve-wracking following on the scoreboard. Can finally get to watch and see what really happened.
Thanks for these, Miri!
Loved it! Rafa looks so young and innocent and proud. All three of them look delighted and proud to be there. Thanks Miri…loved it!
It’s so nice to have a feel of what Olympics 2008 was again, very inspiring for Rafafans.Thank you so much for putting up these videos.
Thanks for the Olympics videos! Priceless! :o)
I hadn’t watched the first two rounds and didn’t realize it was that close. Great memories to post, Miri! I really look forward to this summer and hope that he does just as well in London.
Thanks so much for these videos. I love the ceremony with the medals. Rafa seems so young, and now he is going back again-so exciting. I need to find photos from those Olympics–I had a lot of Rafa pictures and that computer crashed and took them all with it. Thanks again for posting these.
I loved this win, 2008 was my favourite Nadal year of all time, he was just fucking awsome!
Although 2006 and 2010 weren’t throwaways.
He seems to have some extra mojo in the even-numbered years. Let’s hope that works for 2012.
