Curiosity struck me today: how’s Senegal looking at the 30th Olympiad? Here’s a good roundup from Wikipedia on Senegal’s participation in London. There are 38 athletes competing in eight different sports.
From Dakar, we’re lucky enough to have a DirecTV log-in, so we can stream all the events live. Woo! I have a slight Summer Games obsession. I cheered out loud during women’s road cycling today.
As I said in my Facebook status, I might explode into a pile of glitter during the running events next weekend.
Eighteen of the athletes comprise the soccer team – see below. I hope some of the individual performers make the finals in their events; I’d love to watch them compete in the final rounds..
