I'm soooo excited about the Olympics. I'm mostly looking forward to the "Athletics" category. Track is my main interest (having ran for most of my life). I can hardly contain my excitement. When I was a little girl you could not tell me that I wouldn't be participating in the Olympics. Actually, even now at the age of 30 I still believe that some day I'll run in the Olympics. I root for the US in every category except for Track and Field. I go for Jamaica (the country I was born and partly raised in). This Olympics will be awesome. The more I read about the athletes (in track) the more excited I get.
I'm not pleased with the opening ceremony overall but I loved seeing all the countries walking around with their flags. I also like watching swimming, beach volleyball, gymnastics. I love most of the activities. I can just imagine the pride these athletes feel being able to represent their country. Your teammates aren't just the people in your sport, it's your entire country. Ah! I'm just so happy right now. Eek!
