For those that follow my blog or are regular readers, you know that I absolutely love the Olympics. I’ve been looking forward to this time for months. I’m all about TEAM USA!! Being such a fan, I post regular medal counts and often give my opinions of the day’s events. It doesn’t mean I’ll post them every day or that I won’t have regular posts during this time. However, I do enjoy them and hope that you like my coverage of the Olympics.
I think the biggest story is probably Michael Phelps not getting a medal today in the 400 IM. However, we did get a gold medal with Ryan Lochte in the same event. It was quite exciting!! No matter, I still think Phelps is going to get at least a couple medals this year. Our women’s beach volleyball squeaked one through today and move on, as well as the woman’s volleyball taking a win.
Our men’s archery got a bronze today. I just love watching that. I did archery often when I was little and loved it even then. The bows they use for competition is so different than what I used in school though. The other 3 medals that we got today all came in swimming events. I watched the ladies 4x and was yelling for them to pull ahead.
Here’s today’s medal count…..
We usually pick an additional country to root for. Kiddo likes Switzerland and Belgium. I’m a fan of Great Britain and Australia. Who are you rooting for?? What’s your favorite event??
