How To Remember The Olympics

A very nice summary frrom the Economist:

Longevity is not the only measure of value: Usain Bolt won the 100 metres in under ten seconds, but those seconds were quite exciting. The life of a country, like a person’s, is made up of moments, and the golden ones can be cherished even if they change nothing.

I loved the whole 16 days.
