I am so excited that the Olympics start next week. I am excited to see how many medals the USA can bring home this time. And I am also really looking forward to see how London handles the opening ceremonies. Though I am not sure that the ceremony from the Beijing games will ever be topped.
My favorite events to watch are the gymnastics competitions. I am in awe of both the men and women and their performances. When I was a kid and taking gymnastics I dreamed of competing.
So it shouldn't be any surprise that Mary Lou Retton was my hero.
There was only one event that scared me. And I am still not sure why the uneven bars scared me.
The amount of strength it takes to perform on the rings puts me in awe each time I watch them. And yes it takes some strength. I remember getting a chance to try them out when I took classes. I think I lasted 2 seconds.
Diving always amazes me. I know no matter the height of the board I couldn't get in all those flips in before hitting the water.
And who doesn't love watching this guy swim.
The teamwork these two ladies have is amazing. Not to mention their abs after having kids.
There is one thing that could make men's beach volleyball better. The guys play shirtless.
What events are you most looking forward to watching from London?
