Between CTV, TSN and SN1 there was always something to watch. I really enjoyed The Difference Makers, Snapshots, Raising an Olympian and Superbodies. Well done, folks!
While their skills in the gym are nothing short of phenomenal, I did not like their messy hair. Probably because I grew up dancing and a clean, classic bun was always required – much like in rhythmic gymnastics.
I just thought that as elite Olympic athletes, their hair looked as though it was an afterthought.
I suppose that’s where the double standard comes in though. Nobody cares what the female rowers or volleyball players do with their hair…
I watched in awe at the gymnastics elements, the underwater elements, the strength…
And then I stared at their bodies in awe of how amazing they all were. Strong and lean. I think they had the most beautiful bodies of all the athletes.
Things I Will Miss
The “I Believe” song.
I know many are sick of it by now but for me this song conjures up all the warn fuzzies I felt during Vancouver 2010.
– Mark Ronson/Coke. Had me dancing every time it came on.
– The Visa commercials with Morgan Freeman – inspiring.
~”Being disabled doesn’t have to be a disadvantage.”
Share them with me while I nurse my Olympic hangover and try peel myself off the couch that I’ve been sitting on for the past 16 days.
