This is not an overstatement.
I am obsessed with the Olympics. You do not even want to know how many hours I have cataloged this past week watching tv. I'm obsessed with it all! Every single sport that comes on: water polo, equestrian, rowing, kayaking, and ,obviously my favs, gymnastics, volleyball and beach volleyball. Whew. I feel like I've been so busy... but I've been working on school projects as well... kind of. :)

These are some of my new athletes as well as some of my all time favorites.
McKayla Maroney... did you see her vault in the team competition?? Holy cow. She should have gotten a 16.5! I mean, seriously, look at the judges faces!!!!


April Ross, part of the other team for beach volleyball! I love the way she plays!! I would love if it came down to Ross/Kessey vs May/Walsh for the gold!!
Matt Anderson, on the USA Men's team. All you need to know if I feel like I know him since I watched him in person about a month ago. He is rockin the Olympics.
Ryan Lochte has been my love ever since the world competition in 04. He was my background on my computer freshman year at Baylor in 06, and he is now my phone background for these Olympics. What's not to love?
This is Hamadou Issaka. This is his first Olympics ever and he's only been training in rowing for 3 months. He finished last by more than 2 minutes, but when he came into view of the grandstands - the crowd went wild. He received a wild card bid to the Olympics through a federation that is trying to help developing countries - this was the first time he was even in a professional boat. I just love the story, because it shows that it's not necessarily all about who has come in first.

Here's the story:

Happy Olympics!!!
