Hi all! As we get closer to the opening of the Olympic Games in London, I got the idea to do an Olympics Blog. (It will also take my mind off our drought for a while).
I admire all the youth who get off their couches, put down their video games and combine their talent with their PERSEVERANCE to master their sport and represent our Team U.S.A. Plus, the youth around the world who do the same to honor their home countries.
And, we applaud all the self-less parents who drive to and from the practices, the workouts, pay for the lessons and the tournaments and camps for their little (and big) super stars! The moments you all have trained so hard for are finally here! What better Country to hold these games than historic London town!
LET THE GAMES BEGIN!
What's your favorite Olympic sport? What's your favorite Olympic memory or moment? -Please share-
Also, I am going to post about athletes who are from my area or from Illinois/Wisconsin, and watch them as we go through the games to cheer them on.
Please add any athletes you would like to cheer on and tell us where they are from in your community! We'll cheer them on, too.
"May the world be delivered from crime and killing and be free from the clash of arms."
—From the early Olympic truce
