Title: 2008 Olympics!
Post by Shannon on Aug 12th, 2008, 9:59am
So is anyone else an Olympic freak like me? I love to watch them.

I've been completely amazed by Michael Phelps. I never watched much of the swimming before but this year I'm watching everything. He's just so exciting to watch.

So what is everyone's favorites? My favs are probably the gymnastics and now swimming.

My favorite is gymnastics definitely.  It is amazing what they can do.  I also really like diving.  Those are the two sports I wish I could be good at.

I love gymnastics. Always have, always will. I used to do gymnastics myself, until it got to competitive.

I've been watching it religiously everyday! Big tennis fan, but the gymnastics always blows my mind.

Although I think there's TOO much hype about Phelps- clearly he's an incredible swimmer, but all the coverage goes on about is how he's the greatest olympian ever blah blah blah- but you've got to take into account that he's a swimmer so he can enter 8 or more events. If you're a poor badminton player or long jumper (only examples I can think of right now :-/), you're not gonna have as much chance to win all these gold medals. But yeah, amazing swimmer no doubt.

I am sad the Olympics are over because now there are no interesting sports on tv. I just get sick of seeing football and baseball all the time.

I loved watching swimming, track, pole vault, javelin throw, discus, diving, trampolining, gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, synchronized swimming, water polo, even weightlifting. Just things you don't normally see on TV that often.

I never saw triple jump; would have like to see that.

I am afraid also that in 8 years we are going to find out Usain Bolt was doped up.  :o
