    All credit to those Olympic teams who all sang the words of their national anthem, but did the TV really have to pass a microphone along the line?

    No pressure, boys and girls! :baffled:

    Actually, for the Belgian team, the singing of the national anthem partly in French and partly in Dutch was a bit of a statement, to let people know that hockey is a Belgian sport, undivided by language etc.. (referring to the internal political problems we had over the past year of course). Besides that it was also to show that they really were a team, proud to represent their country during the Olympics.

    Actually, the singing of the national anthem was a nice piece of team- and sport-profiling ;)
