waity, willy and Harry won't be going to the Olympics due to the fears of contracting Zika.  Princess Anne however will go

As if any self-respecting bug would want to go near waity - she's probably got enough already of those famous (or should that be infamous?) crotch shots are anything to go by.  DM saying she wants another child so can't go !!!!!  This is also a  discussion for another thread!!!

On the other hand, I don't think any virus  would DARE go near PA!!!

A lot of derogatory comments relating to the fact she used surrogates and not their bio mix
An example below
-----
The doctors in attendance of the surrogate unfortunately let it slip.  Books are near completion detailing this and exposing far more.

I just read a ticker tape along the bottom of my screen that the housing in Rio isn't livable for the olympians?  Australia said they can't use the bathrooms or something along those lines.  This has been a real disaster, so far.

Welcome to hell': Thousands of protesters warn Olympics will not be safe as they march through Rio after Games security firm is FIRED for failing to hire enough guards with just five days to go until the opening ceremony
With just five days before the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics in Rio, only 500 out of 3,000 security screening guards roles have been filled - and the company responsible for filling them has been fired.
Officials have begun drafting in soldiers and ex-policemen to help fill the empty posts, it has been revealed.
Brazil authorities terminated a £4 million deal with Artel, a company who have no previous experience of securing huge sporting events, after it emerged that they could not fill the roles themselves.
The revelation comes as thousands protested on Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana beach demanding the ouster of suspended President Dilma Rousseff, who was impeached in May for allegedly violating budget laws

Ooh, gotta get me one of those maple leaf shirts from Team Canada.  Love 'em.  And France's jackets are fab.  The rest?  So-so.  Except for USA whose are downright uninspired and boring.  Very disappointing but cost-effective, I suppose.  USA Olympic teams are notoriously underfunded but Ralph Lauren could've coughed up something more inspiring than those same junky sport jackets.  Hopefully, this time around they're actually made in the USA.

But, again, Team Canada gets my vote.  Cuba, too.

The duo didn't go to Rio refering to Zika virus so they could go for a "holiday". Just saying.

^ Maybe they are gearing up for child number # 3 since all their children were delivered  on odd years.. End of 2016 seems a good time to place  an  order for a new baby and have it delivered in 2017 ...  laugh laugh

^^ I sure hope not. No more children, please. They barely see the two kids they have (always with nanny), they already have their heir and spare, and they're living on government support and not working.

That would be like someone on welfare who continues to get pregnant despite not being able to pay for the kids they have... and they stay home all day not working, volunteering, or otherwise contributing to society. Sad thing is, lots of places don't allow this anymore (you have to have someone sign off on your work or volunteer hours and turn the papers in to continue to get benefits), but W&K get free government money and don't have to do anything in return.  thumbsdown

Quote
(CNN)Michael Phelps produced a vintage performance to claim an astonishing 19th Olympic gold medal of his career on Sunday.

The 31-year-old, who quit the sport after the 2012 Games, was back with a bang in Rio as Team USA eased to victory in the 4x100 meters freestyle relay.
Phelps, who produced a stunning second leg, has now won 23 medals in total, extending his record as the most decorated Olympian of all time.

Quote
It was the second gold of the night for the U.S. after Katie Ledecky produced an astonishing performance to win gold in the 400m freestyle.
The 19-year-old smashed her own world record to win in a time of 3:56.46 -- nearly five seconds ahead of her closest rival.

Good site for updated medal counts, too.
