i heard from a "good source" that Torres is a homewrecker at least twice over and the whole invitro thing bugs me....so it's hard for me to cheer her on. but looove phelps...

michael phelps is quite wonderful, isn't he? yes, and he's not too shabby of a swimmer either ;)

I am proud of how gracious the US swimmers have been whether they win gold or not.

I can't get enough of them either!

I would have to agree also. Those were some pretty close races.

ok, so i'm not a huge phelps fan- i see he's a good swimmer, and for that: "good for him," but otherwise i'm not enamored. MANY of the other athletes from many countires are doing a super job and being gracious "not-number-one" is amazing.

Yes! It's hard not to love that Dara is 41 and still competitive in her sport. And I love that there was a female gymnast on the German team that is 31 -- a mother, and twice the age of her competitors.

I love how nice they both seem...and I'm sure they really are that nice in real life!

I agree! I love these two...they are a great example of humility in success. The opposite of how the runners act!

Elizabeth said...

Absolutely. These two are so inspiring. They got me back in the pool this week for a little exercise!

amy said...
