Keeping the best for last

Belgians are always in for a good joke. During 2 weeks we pretended we could not win any medals. And then when nobody feared us anymore....our last athlete coming into action won gold.

I said yesterday already that we had hopes for Tia Hellebaut, but she's one of the 6 girls currently jumping over 2 meters so no guarentee for a medal. But she made it as the only one in one try over 2m05 (new Belgian record) and that gave her gold. Woohoo.
