Journalist notes


The crowd was absolutely loud and nutty when Paris was riding. There is a sizable contingent of Australians in the crowd. Just looking around from the press area, I count two big flags. (In contrast though, I count five large USA flags. The USA flags are there but the fans are not as vocal as the Aussies. The commentator during a pause between races did an Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oye Oye Oye. This was also done during the race.)

The commentator said Aussie Aussie Aussie, and the crowd responded Oi Oi Oi. this was done during the race. This is a traditional Aussie chant thing, with Aussies knowing how to respond to it. (Cultural chanting programming.) The commentator is actually doing this every time an Australian is on the track.

The announcer explained that the time trials have no qualifiers; instead everyone races against the clock only once. She rode earlier in the nine.--LauraHale (talk) 14:05, 1 September 2012 (UTC)Reply

After the medal ceremony, Paris returned to the Australian pit area in the center of the track and showed her medal to one of her teammates. She then disappeared. --LauraHale (talk)
