The Olympics are finally here! I absolutely love the Olympics, especially the summer games. Is anyone else with me on this?
As a child, I would absolutely obsess about Olympic gymnastics. I remember watching them longingly and imagining how awesome it would be to be able to preform like that. I envied those girls. Now I realize that I would have ended up at least a half-foot too tall to be any sort of gymnast, but as a short little girl, it was my dream.
Does anyone else remember this?
Kerri Strug was one of my childhood idols. I remember being at my Grandma's house in New Jersey during the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta when she performed her gold medal-winning vault on a previously twisted ankle. Like I said, totally my idol back then.
Does anyone else have fond Olympic memories to share?
