I once read an article talking about why woman in general don’t follow regular sports but go crazy over the Olympics – it’s because of all the personal stories, national pride, and sacrifice are really highlighted. It’s been so inspiring to see these athletes dedicate their lives to being the best. Plus, you don’t see gymnastics, swimming, beach volleyball, or track and field everyday (as well as the more obscure sports, like discus and synchronized swimming).
I confess to being a little obsessed, and I may or may not have watched hours of youtube videos of current and old Olympic events … and maybe I re-watched the entire Beijing opening ceremony as well…
