I love to watch the Olympics. I love to watch the competition of the worlds best athletes. I do consider myself quite patriotic, however during the Olympics I become a bit crazed for our American team. I also love to support the underdogs from various small countries that have 2 athletes, or no training facilities, or coaches.
At the summer games I love to watch gymnastics, diving, swimming, and track; winter games figure skating, skiing, ski jumping, snowboarding. I first became enamored with the Olympics watching Nadia Comaneci.......
My husband said that it was the moment when Wilma Rudolph wins her gold metals after childhood doctors told her she would not walk, that he remembers most.

and of course Mary Lou, I remember when she landed the vault,
I was jumping up and down in my living room.
