      @Johny G
      Then you have NO idea how overwhelmed you would be if you became best in the world at something.

      Instead of being happy for this persons success, your first response is to try to shame her for her reaction to the win. Shame on you.

    • Whatatay T says:

      @MishtahPoog It’s laziness, poor technique, and lack of body awareness. No one of any skill flails their arms around like that. It’s a waste of energy. The Olympics isn’t made up of champions, its made up of amateurs and no rules tell rhem to flop their arns around. Like everything else sports have becomed dumbed down and this is the result. They have bastardized the sport. Also the best coaches are for professionals not amateurs and these girls are 18 so neither one has been training for decades so your lies don’t cut it here.

Although B!tcoin is considered a safe haven asset and a store of value , it often moves in tandem with the r!sk – on m@rket. The simultaneous recovery of the global stock markt and kryptocurrencies followed a minor correction in the krypto m@r:ket over the weekend . This a big chance for novice to st@rt on how 2 tr@de just like I started after the 2017 craash through the help of Daniel Wright have been able to dilate my partfol!o to 68BTC according to Daniel there are two things to do now which are buying the dip and trad!n for more, on how to dilate your krypto thruugh tr@d!ng go over to Daniel { Danielwrightfx} at the teq:ram.
