"This year's venue of the dog Olympics 2004 is Sancti Petri Beach..." "... the athletes are ready to go and are prepared to show their very best performances..."
Amani Amani
"...fully concentrated and with sharp senses."
"Before the actual start, one should take the time to familiarise oneself with the local weather and the conditions at the stadium!"
Red Namib Sands Amani Amani & Kappa
"... hard training was necessary to present oneself in top-form here today..."
"... The long waiting periods can start getting to you after a while..."
Amani & Kappa Amani & Kappa
"...In such situations distraction is the best remedy - for example taking a cooling yet invigorating paw dip..."
"... or having a quick and strengthening protein snack...."
Dopingkontrolle... Mara, Amani & Kappa
"Last port of call is passing through doping control... "
"... before finally entering the stadium with the other athletes..."
Amani & Kappa Amani & Kappa
"... On your marks... set...."

Kappa, Amani & Mara Amani, Mara, Kappa
"... but in the first bend he is catching up and is getting increeeeedibly fast...but will he keep his speed?!"
"...... YEEESSSS!!!! He is reaching the finish line just slightly ahead of his competitors...What a close call!!"
 Amani y botella Amani, Mara & Kappa
"Unfortunately, relay had to be cancelled due to a lack of interest and participation..."
"However, the next discipline was quickly agreed upon..."
Wrestling! Wrestling 2
"...Wrestling!!!"
"... the inclusion of unusual elements into a performance can sometimes positively influence the jury and result in higher scores..."

"The participation in water sports competitions..."

"...requires a strong combination of being fanatic of water and having absolute wave control. These factors often determine who will take home a medal at the end of the day..."
"...this time it sadly wasn't quite enough for a medal for Amani... Silver goes to England...."
"...and Gold to Germany... (even if it isn't always begrudged to the actual winners...)"
"... in the end, it is being there which counts...".
"During the concluding dressage..."
"...everyone was able to boost their total scores..."
"Great Games!!! ... No doubt that the athletes will be there again for the next competitions with equal enthusiasm and happy hearts! "
