2008 Olympic Athletic Gear

Check out what the athletes from Teams USA and Canada are wearing to compete in the 2008 Beijing Olympics!

US Olympic Gear

Team USA. How cool is Nike? The official designers for US Olympians have made high tech track suits that shave fractions off races, breaking up drag from 12 to 19 percent! Meanwhile, athletes competing in the swimming events will be wearing Speedo's revolutionary LZR Racer that was developed with the help of NASA. Since its launch in February 2008, 44 world records have been broken by swimmers wearing the LZR Racer! Featuring the red, white and blue of the American flag, Team USA will be looking good even while sweatin' up a storm. Check out the American Olympic gear at www.usolympicshop.com,

Canada's Olympic Gear

Team Canada. Team Canada is outfitted in the first eco-friendly Olympic collection designed by HBC. Made of fabrics like bamboo, cacona and organic-blended cotton, it has moisture wicking properties that help keep the athletes cool in the Beijing heat. Since these fabrics were hard to find in Canada, they were sourced mainly in China, which is why they were made in China (much to critic's dismay). Made up of track suits, hoodies, T-shirts, shorts and headbands, the 2008 line keeps the Canadian spirit with maple leaves and red and white colors, but also pays tribute to China with an Oriental feel to the design. Unfortunately, the tapestry print is so busy and distracting that it borders on ugly. Plus, it looks more like a pajama set than a track suit. Anyone else think they should bring back Roots?

There is this guy at my school know my best friend likes, the problem is I like him as well and I think he may have been flirting with me. My friend says its okay but I don't think she's being honest. He's the first guy that I've liked that actually notices me. I like him but I don't want to lose my best friend. What do I do?

Not really throughout my life but I guess since bullying is repeated teasing, once in fifth grade these kids made up the joke that my name(Su for those you that don't know) stood for StupidUgly, which I mean wasn't THAT bad but I was like what, 10 xD I mean I let it roll off but did end up crying in the shower once. My mom caught me and made me explain everything and made it better. So really, instead of hiding it I recommend talking to an adult about it if you're ever bullied, even tho keeping it a secret may seem like a good idea.  Ever since then I've never been bullied. I'm thankful fo that c;

YEs I have been bullied. A lot. People who I think are my friends are back stabbers. They suddenly just like turn on me. I've had rumoursspread about me and I was so sad. I hated being bullied. But the best thing to do if you are being bullied is to hold your head high and not cry. Because if you show a single tear that is what the bully wants And it will take you as an easy target and will bully you more and more and more and more. And bullies won't stop until you stand up to them.
