“You are a lover of words, someday you will write a book.”
I like that one…
- The Water Cube is awesome, inside and out. Seriously, if I was a swimmer (which I’m not because I swim like a dork) or a diver (uhh, no, the fear of heights thing), I’d want the opportunity to swim or dive there.
- That being said, synchronized diving is crap. I don’t like the contrived sports like this and synchronized swimming and rhythmic gymnastics. Give me steeplechase or weightlifting or even table tennis, but not this…please.
- Used to be, I loved gymnastics, basketball, and swimming in the Olympics. These days, my top viewing includes rowing, soccer, beach volleyball, and still…swimming (but, of course, leave the synchronization out of it).
- I have to admit it seems the “girl” gymnasts are starting to look more like women, at least from the United States, and that’s an improvement over the borderline eating disorder cases that have been seen in past years.
