Lithuanians and Latvians in the Olympics

without comments

Here are a few quick notes about how a few Lithuanians and Latvians (sometimes referred to as “My People” [upper case, which differentiates them from "my people," which refers to White Sox fans]) are doing in the Olympics (behind the cut so as not to spoil anything for people who are even more behind the times than I am):

Men’s hoops: Lithuania upsets Argentina. Linas Kleiza is awesome (told ya!).

    Men’s beach volleyball: Latvians upset world champs Dalhausser and Rogers.

    Women’s road cycling: Edita Pucinskaite finished 9th, Jolanta Polikeviciute finished 11th, and Modesta Vzesniauskaite finished 27th.
