I jumped up cheering along with most of the rest of the World who would have been watching (well non American World) when she crashed. When the arrogance and egotistical, better than everyone else in the World attitude, fell flat on its arse. Maybe the USA will learn something from this although I dont think so. I hope at least that she has learnt from this and that is to be a better competitor and to be gracious and sportsman like in victory and defeat.

emotion shared by many non-Americans

Thanks for your comment.

I?m sure that was the same emotion shared by many non-Americans. When the USA fails, other countries rejoice. It?s only natural.

She did act gracious in defeated and did do all interviews requested and did not avoid the media. Give her credit for that.

Hi Benny

Unfortunately we do not see the interviews she gave afterwards?. It was very pleasing to read your last sentence and good on her for doing so and I give her Ten out of Ten. Humility is such an outstanding value to have.
