I love the Olympics
While I think what Torres, Phelps and company have done is awesome, it's not the highlight for me. The 38 yr old Romanian woman who won the Marathon by half a minute after injuries have prevented it before, the small boy with Yao Ming during the Opening Ceremony, Janet Evans watching her 19 year old swimming record finally get broken... That's what the Olympics is about.
As for Janet Evans, I was amazed when that record was broken. Absolutely amazed.
Becky Adlington was AMAZING. Nobody expected that much from her- I mean, we knew she was good but like a lot of our swimmers it was a case of 'olympic experience for next time, peak in London' and then she goes and wins 2 golds and breaks a world record as old as she is! Just wonderful.
I'm really pleased for Phelps. I think he's sweet.
Jaw-dropping moment for me (my jaw is still dropping) was Usain Bolt's 100m win. OH. MY. GOD. He wasn't even sprinting properly for the last 20 metres, he was celebrating. I've never seen a sprint final at a major championships before where the winner wasn't leaning for the line- Bolt was leaning backwards
. The man is spectacular. I love him.
Team GB got an awesome medal haul this weekend. Our cyclists are amazing, and often overlooked. Come on Wiggins and Hoy!
