I absolutely love when it is the year of the Olympics.
Growing up, I loved playing and watching sports. When I was kid playing Softball, my beloved sport had not yet made an appearance in the Olympic games. In fact, they did not appear in the games until 1996 with me going into my freshman year of high school.
And for the 2012 games? Well they won’t be there. I am incredibly disappointed, however my family and I are excited to cheer on a few of our favorite sports this summer.
This young lady is named Alex Morgan and has me and a whole bunch of Diamond Bar residents pumped because she is on the US Women’s Soccer team. All of the ladies are incredibly skilled and talented and we are so excited to see if the US can bring home the gold again.
My sweet Madi loves Gymnastics and she is definitely going to be glued to the screen so she can watch these young girls vault, tumble and fly through the air as they reach for Gold. And truth be told, it is one of my favorite sports to watch as well. Their performances are often dramatic, breath-taking and beautiful to watch. Go Team USA!
And there are more! Track & Field, Swimming, Basketball.
Are you excited? Will you be watching? What is your favorite sport to watch in the Olympic Games?
