Like millions of other people around the world, our family is enjoying the dramatic and emotional ride that is the Olympics. We take the opportunity to appreciate sports that we don’t usually get to see as well as taking in the marquee moments we come to expect.
Kim Rode set an Olympic record in shooting by hitting 99 0f 100 shots to become the first American with individual medals in five straight olympics.
Michael Phelps has now won the most medals of any olympian in history. There is no denying the dedication, talent and skill that goes into such an achievement, not to mention the help of his teammates.
Missy Franklin, the seventeen year old, Justin Bieber loving high school girl with a big heart and a bigger smile. She won her first individual medal, a gold one, in the 100 meter backstroke. We congratulate her and as a Colorado girl, we thank her for bringing some light back to a part of the country that has been bowed but not broken by devastating wildfires and a tragic, senseless shooting.
A little olympic swim team fun.
