My Life changes around the time of the Olympic Games!

I am not a sports person. I am not interested in playing sports myself, or in watching them.

But, something changes every 2 years when the Olympics are shown on TV.

In the summer, I watch the swimming events, the gymnastics, and other big events where they help us get to know the athletes. It is the people and their stories that I love. Feeling pride for my country, and feeling their thrilling victories with them or watching them cry in defeat.

In the winter, I love the ice skating and some of the other icy events.

After the Calgary games, they kept the facilities. When we were moving back east from California, we took a long way around the US and Canada. We stopped in Calgary for the day at the Calgary Olympic park, and it was awesome.  http://www.winsportcanada.ca



So, I have no interest in sports in general. I do become a partner with my husband in rooting for the US athletes, and a part of the world as we watch the most popular reality tv ever created!

We can all relate to the feelings that the contestants display, and can learn from their courage and perseverance.



What do I remember as I watch the games and the interviews?  Always get back to basics, do the work, and keep going no matter what. Shake off setbacks and you can win in the next event!!

If you want a good coach and mentor, and go for the gold – join our team at the 10K Challenge!

    You are so right. I admire these athletes for their dedication and determination. They spend a lifetime making themselves as perfect as they can, and what hard work!

    I am right there with you. I am so busy doing other things or working on my business that I have lost a lot of interest in other things, especially watching sports on TV. But when the Olympics come around I always make time for swimming and diving.

      Thanks Clint. Nice of you to stop by.

    Yep I agree Sally, back to basics and do the work is what I take away too.

  4. August 5, 2012 at 8:18 pm

    I like sports all the time and especially the Olympics. I am so glad that you are enjoying them too.

    Watching these athletes have the chance to represent their country is breathtaking. My favorite part is the medal ceremony where they get to reflect on their accomplishments while listening – or singing – their national anthem……

      Craig, hope that is because you didn’t want to. It is a shame to miss some of these historic moments if you are interested.

    Nice post, Sally 🙂 I don’t see much of the Olympics, but I do see a few winning clips that are shared across the internet.

    I don’t watch much, thanks to NBC. I do appreciate the hard work and I do wish them well, with a slight preference to the American athletes… but I love excellence from anywhere.

    I don’t have TV, so I don’t watch the Olympics, but I find the olympians very inspiring and try to catch what I can online.

    The Olympics, to me, is the greatest metaphor in life – inspiring us to realise that set your mind and heart on a target – and you will change your life in the journey of achieving it ! It is an event which I feel has the potential of awakening the Olympian in every one of us ! 🙂 Abhjit

    these athletes makes me want to be them or someone like them who persevere against human physical limits.

    • August 6, 2012 at 5:02 pm

      Yes, we can imagine ourselves in them! Good point

  15. August 5, 2012 at 11:43 pm
