This iReport is part of an assignment:
Beijing Fan Zone
Iceland going bonkers !
Iceland will compete against France for the Gold on Sunday.
And it will broadcast in Iceland at 7:45 local time ,in the morning.
Movie theaters will show the game ,where movies are usually shown - and it will be free.
Everybody will be awake that early.
Today ,when the game was on ,when Iceland won Spain,everything stopped -
While the game was on - there was no activity at the Icelandic Stock Exchange.
After the game ,cars where driving with Icelandic flags around town.
And tonight - as you can see on the video - there where still some with the flag ,and people where going downtown - to celebrate.
But there was also a cruise liner leaving town - mabey it was a French Ship -- or Spanish !
Iceland has won three medals - since the beginning of modern
Olympics. -- 1 silver and 2 bronce.
Triple jump in 1956, judo in 1984, pole vault in 2000.And since we are only about three hundred thousand that live
here in Iceland - it will be nice to win France ( population 60 million )
