The first round, she played a game with a Danish player, and in that time she led a point.
But suddenly an accident attacked her. When she did receiving, she was wounded in the left foot. She fell down by an acute pain, but she was going to continue playing the game.
However, unfortunately she had to renounce the game.

When she was going to leave the court, all spectators sent warm applause to her and her tears. I was impressed by her unyielding mind.
I hope she participate in the next Olympic and hope that we can watch her smile next time.

When she turned up at the finals, her eyes were full of fight and she gave her opponent a fierce look. She did'nt hide her strong desire to win and concentrated all her efforts on the finals. She was dying for the gold medal and then finally she became the gold medalist.
She has often been reffered to as the " beast " because of her fiece look. But she dropped her fierce game face and stood on the top of the medals podium. Her face broke out into a wide smile and there was'nt the beast there.
We know this is not an easy time for Tim, as family are still in the Philippines, but we are all looking forward to your family reunion asap.

Cicadas ("semi" in Japanese) are those enormous doodlebug size insects that make a racket this time of year. They really are a bit gross. The worst experience I ever had with one was when I was riding my old Kawasaki, quite quickly, visor open (need air!) & wallop - a cicada flew into my helmet & splattered all over the right side of my face/ear. Remarkably, I didn't crash, but I did feel very well!
Funniest cicada experience was on Sado Island, watching the Kodo drummers - one dived-bombed straight down the crack of my friend Paul's shorts (never to be seen again!)
What is your best/worst cicada story?!

I arrived in Budapest safely. Here is very cooler than Shinshu, so I have to take care of my health condition. The language is Magyar, but many people can speak English. I feel that staying here became easier than before.
Have a nice holiday!

Uchimura started gymnastics at the age of three and he has won many competitions since then. His parents run a gymnastic school and he has been practicing gymnastics there.
Now he has won the world gymnastic championship three times in a row. In the Beijing Olympics Uchimura couldn't get a gold medal and he ended in silver. His dream was to to get a gold medal in the Olympics. This year, in the London Olympics, he finished his performance with a perfect landing and he was able to win a gold medal. I'm glad that he has won a gold medal.

To the Persian
I am leaving this letter for you, because once you were my friends. Now, of course, I have only enemy. People scream when they see my face. I am clever, it is true, but no woman can ever love me. And how can a man live without love?
When I was a child, I was very unhappy. My mother never kissed me. She didn't want to look at me because I was so ugly. And years later, when I was a man, I did many terrible things. I know that, I am sorry now. But I did one good thing in my life. Christine is free. She can marry the Vicomte and be happy.
But I can never forget her wonderful voice, and I cannot live without her.
And so, goodbye.
I know this story really famous around the world, however I have never read book. After reading I felt the Phantom is lonely person.
If I have a chance, I would likely to see this story as opera performance.
I was glad to see Tim Sensei today :D

I think that the army killed old President. They did not like his political strategy and wanted to change the President so that they could control the country as they like. Therefore, old President was killed by them, and their very good friend became new President.
This is just my guess. I would like to know the author's answer. I am also interested in who Marta was.

An Egyptian player committed a foul with dangerous play, and the referee gave him a red card and made him leave the pitch in the first half.
Later in the game, Japan scored another two goals and won three - nil.
They got a place in the semi-final stage for the first time in 44 years! Then, they are going to play Mexico to advance to the Olympic final.
