Re: Olympic medal hopes doused by Czechs, By Tom Nicholson, Volume 12, Number 08 ,February 27 - March 05, 2006

It is only a game, and life goes on, but I am still disappointed.

Although Slovakia succeeded in fielding one of its better teams in this Winter Olympics, I believe people expected more from them, at least a medal, if not the gold. But it was not meant to be.

I am very disappointed in them for not playing harder against the Czechs. That game embodied the Olympics for Slovakia. Anything after it would have been just icing on the cake.

Sorry also about the injury to Pavol Demitra. I understand that he has a broken nose, a fractured cheek and something wrong with his eye. I haven't read anything too specific about his injury, though. Go Slovakia! (at the next Olympics).
