Congratulations to Joni she has WON the $80.00 VISA gift card!
Her favorite moment:
“ It had to be when Misty May-Treanor & Kerri Walsh won their third Olympic gold medal. They had, together, receive their first gold medals in 2004. Now, 8 years later, won their third ones. They were a true example of the Olympic spirit as they solidified themselves as legends in beach volleyball, showing a tribute to focus and hard work. By the way, for the first time in history women outnumbered men on the U.S. Olympic Team.”
The Olympics may be over but the stories and the legacy of these athletes will live on forever. With the USA taking home 104 medals, 29 of those being gold and some crushing world records, I think we can proudly say The 2012 London Games were a huge success! I thought last nights closing ceremony was spectacular and I only wished they had used some of that for the opening ceremony;)
This was the first year that my kids were old enough to understand what The Olympics is and what it means. My 5 year old son was a little confused but my daughter was pretty impressed particularly by the diving and the gymnasts. As a Mom it was fun and sometimes difficult to try to explain just how impressive these athletes are and what hard work and dedication looks like. I am not sure they absorbed it all, but I tried. However, last night my daughter was a little disappointed when she found out that it was all over and when I asked her what was her favorite part of The Olympics? She said “The gymnastics!”
I loved cheering for Michael Phleps and watching him make history. I also absolutely loved seeing the USA gymnastics team finally stand on the top of the Olympic podium and take home the gold. Allyson Felix and all of the USA track stars amazed me and Kerri Walsh and Misty May Treanor, well they inspire me!
