Olympic games

olympic 2016

When I learned that the U.S. women’s basketball team would play against France in the semifinal round of the tournament in Rio for the Olympic Games, I knew that the French team would be no match for the team USA Uconn.

Yes, to me it was France – Uconn as there were six former  players from the University of Connecticut and their coach Geno Auriemma who is still the head coach of the Uconn women’s basketball team. A great team, even when it is struggling it is still much better than the other teams.

The French team was satisfied with its performance because it lost only by 19 points whereas some other teams lost by more than 30 points. Still, they lost.

And since in April I woke up in the middle of the night to watch live the second half-time of the women’s basketball NCAA finale with the real UConn team, I thought that I could watch live this semifinal which began at midnight, French time, which I did. Go Uconn!
