Olympic Contest--Let's go Dutch

JD has conducted the drawing for his Olympics contest, but he still has some countries available so if you haven't entered, give it a try. I ended up with the Netherlands and that's pretty good. In the 2006 Winter Olympics the Netherlands won 3 Gold, 2 Silver and 4 Bronze medals. After a little research I found their strongsuit is Speed Skating, but there are 34 athletes and I'm sure they have some fine ones. Here are a few of them:

Annette Gerritsan--Speed Skating

Liesbeth Mau Asam--Short Track

Jorien Voorhuis--Speed Skating

Tine Veenstra--Bobsleigh

I'll be pulling for the good Ol' U S A of course, but the Netherlands has a new fan in Texas!
