Olympic Update

This afternoon, Canadian diver Alexandre Despatie was granted a conditional placement on the Olympic team. Later, Canadian gymnast Kyle Shewfelt was also conditionally placed on the team. In honour of their almost assured spots on Team Canada for the Beijing 2008 Olympics, here are the clips of both athletes starring on the Rick Mercer Report. Laugh along as Rick learns to dive and tries on an Olympic gold medal!

  1. The high dive was hilarious! I hought he was going to dive on the last diving board... that was scary. He has a talent to make things funny

  2. Wow Al, you must have just commented. I updated the post with 2 more situations. You may want to help problem solve those too. Thanks!
