Inspired by Pandelela.

In celebrating our nation's first female Olympic medal winner (Bronze), Pandelela Rinong (10m platform event), I give you Stunt Dive. An exciting diving game where you can perform tricks and score points. I've been playing it for a while now. It is fun and the music sounds so cool. My highest was only around 650 points. About half the points that some players earned. You can check the rankings. Lol. Give it a try. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. And congratulation to Team MALAYSIA for the success that they've achieved in the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Women Football (or Soccer)

Football is no longer a man's game. The emergence of female football team has somehow provide a fresh spark to the most entertaining game in the world. I'm no experts on football and I'm not much of a player either. But I do enjoy watching it.

Just finished watching the women semi final football match of the Olympic between France and Japan. I never watched a full women football match. And for this match, I only watched the second half. Out of boredom to be honest. But to my surprise, the game was actually good. Especially, France. They we're trailing 1-0 at the interval and Japan doubled their lead with a fine header from a set piece a few minutes after the start of the second half.

But after that, they basically controlled the ball. Performing numerous attempts towards the goal and finally able to get 1 goal to put them back into the game. They manage to get a penalty but the player who took the penalty sent the ball wide at the left post although the Japanese goalkeeper already went the other way. The match ended with Japan winning the match with 2-1.

Seeing this match has definitely provide me with new insights. It is different than football played by men. There aren't much power when they blast the ball, or speed when they chase or run with the ball. But they do have skills.

Earlier, I saw one of the French player dribbling the ball, did a spin while being surrounded by 3 Japanese players and she manage to get away with the ball. I was like, Whoa!!. Never thought that a woman can do that. Lol. But I guess it is to be expected since they're playing at an international level. The set pieces were good too. Should have gotten a few goals from it. It's a pity that they lost. Anyway, next up is Canada versus USA. I think I'm going to watch the full match. Let see if there are any more surprises for me.

France Olympic Team. That No.2 is freakingly tall. :p
