Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Izzy, thanks for the report. I am slowly starting to become aware at all the challenges and finesses involved in Olympic competions and races. I really can just imagine the horrors of moos-green, good thing they didn't have to put a gold- medal with hole in the middle on it on that outfit. However, pink-orange can be considered esoterically the color of vital-energy and seems to have benefited the Italien couple well. :-)

I couldn't agree more, Fran.  There was nothing wrong with that pink!

And, honestly, you're lucky you didn't have to see the moss green.  It was quite horrifying and I felt a bit shook up for some time afterwards.  Also, in an attempt to spare the readers, I left out the worst part -- the outfits were moss green and purple.  

Even as I write the words, I'm doubting it could have happened -- purple?  am I sure?  who would do such a thing?  should I look for photographic evidence?  what if I can't find it?  will I have to forever live with the suspicion that my own mind might have conjured such a thing? -- No.  Best to leave such thoughts un-thunk.  We shall speak no more of it.

Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding. -Hobbes
