Thirteen Awesome Moments at the Olympics

1. Adrian wins 100 meter freestyle by one one hundreth of a second
2. The Fab Five win gold in Women’s Gymnastics
3. Greg Louganis and Kristian Ipsen win bronze in 10 meter Diving
Greg Louganis has been to four Olympics without a medal. At 33, he finally won a bronze and it was awesome to watch.
4. Kelci Bryant and Abby Johnston took silver in 3 meter Synchronized diving
I watched this one and it was absolutely amazing. These two women were fantastic.
5. Kimberly Rhodes Takes Gold in Skeet Shooting
6. Ryan Lochte wins gold in 400 meter Individual Medley
I’d link the articles, but sadly all they talk about is Michael Phelps. Lochte’s moment was completely overshadowed by Phelps’s brooding. I watched the race and Lochte was exciting and explosive. He dominated the race. Plus, he’s totally positive even when he loses. (As in the Team Relay)
7. Dana Vollmer wins gold and sets world record with 100 meter butterfly
8. Missy Franklin wins Gold in 100 meter backstroke and dedicates win to Aurora, CO. victims.
9. USA Takes silver in men’s Archery to Italy. This was an awesome competition and the USA lost by ONE POINT. Great moment.
10. Cyclist Bradley Wiggins wins gold for Great Britain
This guy is ON A ROLL!!!! This was a great moment.
11. Micheal Phelps wins gold medal 4X200 Freestyle
12. Danell Leyva wins bronze in Men’s Gymnastics all around
13. Walsh and Treanor come back to win against Austria in Beach Volleyball
Even though everyone focuses on how they lost the first set, they came back for an inspirational win and kicked ass.

  1. Thanks Paige. I love my olympics!

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I don’t have cable.

  3. Ok my lack of watching is making me miss so much..dang..

  4. It’s been a great one — and so many others there’s not even room to list!

    I wouldn’t worry about Lochte too much, Phelps is retiring after this Olympics, and Lochte has YEARS left to go!

  5. I’m enjoying the Olympics. My highlights – NZ equestrian team winning bronze in teams event and the rowing gold in the men’s double scull last night. Oh, and I loved the woman’s hockey team beating Australia in the heats. Evil grin.

  6. I am in LOVE with the Olympics. Personal favorite right now is beach volleyball. Hot bodies, exciting action, and fast paced movement. Love it!

  7. Sorry not to get round to this last Thursday or over the weekend. There have been a lot of memorable moments in this year’s Olympics. The swimming and gymnastics and beach volleyball are some of my favorite events, but yesterday’s tennis match and last night’s track events were equally exciting.
