Favorite Olympian this summer?

I LOVE watching the Summer Olympics... Those people motivate me to keep in shape. I've seen two women that were the same age as me (36) and still competing. Wow. I guess I have no excuse. : )

Go Michael Phelps! Even though I think the sleeping compartment is a bit extreme.

  • I can't get into the Olympics this year. I've always loved watching them. I had this feeling before. It will probably go away in 4 years.

  • I haven't been watching much since we got back from camping Sunday, and obviously I missed about 4 days while we were camping. But before we left, I really loving Ryan Lochte.

  • Missy Franklin is a doll! i also love the joy & spunkiness of Gabby Douglas. and it goes without saying that Phelps and Bolt are very entertaining. my favorite changes every time i watch a sport b/c i just love the Olympics and sports in general. last night it was the 2 US Decathlon winners Eaton & Hardee (Gold & Silver). right this very moment my fav is the Gold medal winner in Grecco-Roman Wrestling, Jordon Burroughs...he was excellent!! and all the athletes who have overcome homelessness, abuse rape, molestation, etc...its mind boggling how strong they were even as kids!
