Alia Atkinson came last. That was last night. Today, the city is quiet people sad. No one is talking much. We take our Olympic team personally. Everywhere you go will be someone who knows someone who is on the team. For us, the athletes are our family. It is said; "When they take the track, We take the track..." So, it's kind of mourning here today.

Sorry to hear, you have a great team but it sometimes happens to come last. Alia still made it to the finals though! Here we follow a few athletes just because they're famous, because they won before. The unknown ones are often those who give us satisfations though.

Here, our athletes are everything. I wanted to tell her that there are over six billion people on this planet who never have and never will reach the Olympics.

I can understand that all would be saddened by this event.

It is really sad... no one knows what happened, why she did so badly.
