Philippine standings in the 2008 Olympics as of 8/13/2008

Five days after the opening of the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, the Philippines is still at the bottom of the pit with a grand total of 0 medals! This is a HUGE improvement over the 2004 Olympics in Athens where we managed to bag 9 medals (2 silvers and 7 bronze)! I feel ecstatic already.

When an office mate of mine told me that whoever gets the first gold medal in the 2008 Olympics was going to get 5 million pesos, a house and lot, and a car, I thought hey, that’s a good thing. No problem, right? Now all we have to do is get that gold medal.
