The Opals smashed Russia in the final. When you consider how few play the game here and from such a small population base it's nothing less than a miracle. Still Australia is the most successful sporting nation on the planet per head of population. Any Olympics we win more medals per head than anybody. I'm not so sure it's a good thing though as the obsession with sport takes precedence over everything. As they say if World Was III started Aussies would still go straight to the back pages of their paper to read the sporting news. We are a weird mob.
