Rita, that is part of the draw of the Olympics for me. The “any given day” philosophy still lives, to some extent, in the Olympics. Of course, the favorites usually win but there's always the chance of an upset on the podium, if not getting the gold. Of course, that's true at any race but it seems to especially be true at the Olympics, as well as Worlds (Jenny Simpson in the 1500, for example).
