100 Days!

Posted on April 18, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Today marks 100 days until the 2012 Summer Olympics in London!

 

I added the Opening Ceremonies to my Google calendar about a month ago, so I’m already gearing up for it.  I love love love the Summer Olympics.  I love the Olympics in general – winter or summer, but I look forward to summer more solely because of the swimming. I was a competitive swimmer growing up so have always followed swimmers in the Olympics and beyond.

2008 was obviously a very exciting year with Michael Phelps breaking all kinds of records and winning a record number of gold medals.  He’ll be back this year, but Ryan Lochte is out there to give him a good run!  Also, I’m really excited by Missy Franklin – a 16 year old from Colorado – who made a name for herself in 2011 at the World Championships and who no doubt will be a force come July!

Not only do I get into the competitiveness of watching the sports, but I love all the sappy back stories NBC runs on featured athletes.  Their formula for those stories is perfect and it keeps people watching (especially me) and cheering on a new crowd favorite.

Now if only my job didn’t get in the way, I’d find my way to London to take in some swimming events here for the week!

Go USA!
