Abstract

The tears, the laments, the massive sadness over Australia's 'disappointing' performance at the Olympics. Drew Ginn of the Oarsome Foursome looked so very disappointed at his team's second place finish, almost as disappointed as Emily Seebohm, who was so distressed that she might have let her family and country down with her silver medal performance that she was in tears.
