Panama Has A Chance At A Bronze in Taekwondo (Right Now)

Sports Section There's new hope for Panama. It was announced Carolena Carstens would advance in the consolation round, in which she will compete for the Bronze medal in the 49 kilogram weight class of Taekwondo at the Olympics in London, said Angel Valdes of TVN and TVMAX. This is possible because, winning the semifinals, the three-time champion of the world and four time champion of Europe, the Spaniard Brigitte Yague today beat the Thai Chanati Sonkham 10 -9 at the London Olympics. Carstens lost this morning to Yague 7 -2 in the Quarterfinals, and will now face Mexico's Janneth Joy at 2:30 pm Panama time this afternoon, David Salayandía. (TVN)

Editor's Comment: Turn on your TV and watch this match. You might be watching some history.

Update: Never mind. She lost.

People say that we do not support our athletes, and we expect so much from them. First of all, we are not a great country in sports.

I am sure that our athletes did their best but they were not well prepared to compete with the elite.

Besides, we were only 8 athletes against the world. Countries like China, USA, so on have more than 500 athletes. So it's all about numbers.
