My Olympics

I've watched every Olympics, both summer and winter, since Atlanta 1996. Two of my favorite things in life are skiing and ice hockey, so I prefer the winter games, but only by a small margin. In 2006, I was lucky enough to visit Torino for the Olympics, where I saw Freestyle Skiing at Sauze D'Oulx and the 3-3 tie between USA and Latvia in Men's Hockey. Hopefully, my second time going to the Olympics will be in London in 2012!

Olympic Favorites:

  • Team: USA because I'm American, but I also support Switzerland because that is where I went to school.
  • Olympic Moment: USA winning ice hockey gold in 1980, even though I wasn't alive yet!
  • Summer Games: Beijing 2008. I was traveling throughout the games, and I could only watch the events at bars, all of which were overrun by Australians (they are everywhere!). They talked a lot of smack about swimming, but luckily for me, Michael Phelps was absolutely dominant. I had the last laugh every night.
  • Winter Games: Torino 2006, but only because I attended. As a television viewer, I really enjoyed the Vancouver games. The hockey tournament in 2010 was one of the best sports tournaments of all time!
  • Winter Events: Ice Hockey. Alpine Skiing. Freestyle Skiing. Curling. Short track speed skating.
  • Summer Athletes: Jesse Owens. Muhammad Ali. Michael Johnson. Michael Phelps. Brian McBride.
  • Olympic Venue: Beijing National Aquatics Center. It's an indoor waterpark now!
