It doesn’t take a keen eye to recognize the fact that the Spanish are on a role right now when it comes to international sports. It was just over a week ago that the Spaniards were celebrating a One-Nil victory over Germany in the Euro 2008 Finals, led by the young Fernando Torres and incredible goal keeping skills of Iker Casillas. I can only guess that Spain was on cloud 9 as they hoisted the cup for the first time and ended a 44 year long drought in international play.
And just when you though it couldn’t get any better for the Spaniards, Alejandro Valverde of Spain has been an early leader in the Tour de France, although Romain Feillu of France has taken over the lead today after stage 3.
With all this domination, I have to wonder how the Spaniards will show in the upcoming Olympics. Could we see a shifting of power when it comes to the international sporting community? Well, probably not, but it’s fun to think about.
