I will have to admit that I haven’t been watching very much of the olympics over the past week. I’m going to be heading up in the mountains for a long weekend tomorrow so I will probably end up missing a few more days. My hometown is sure holding strong over the last two Olympics though. Four years ago, Shawn Johnson, who is from West Des Moines, IA and went to the same high school as I did, ended up winning gold in gymnastics. Now yesterday Gabby Douglas won the overall individual gold in gymnastics. Gabby has been living in West Des Moines and training at the same gym as Shawn did.
Being an avid outdoors person I favor the winter olympics because of skiing and snowboarding, but it has been fun to briefly catch some of the swimming and kayaking. Have all of you been watching the olympics? What has been your favorite sport to watch?
