Since we have the Olympic swimming trials here in Omaha, I feel like I need to watch at least part of those as well. I’m amazed at how fast those races go! And the diving! Holy cow!
Thanks to Runner’s World, I’ve developed a whole new appreciation for the running and track events as well. I’m especially intrigued by the steeplechase events because I’ve never seen on of those (for people anyway!).
My favorite part about the Olympics, though, are all of the things you stumble across that you didn’t even realize were Olympic sports. Apparently there’s some kind of slalom, like you do on skis, but with a canoe it water? Sounds intriguing! Last summer Olympics, Darrell and I got sucked into the weightlifting for some reason. It was amazing to watch these tiny women kill it! I’ve got the schedule open on my phone so we can pick out some things for the DVR over the next couple of weeks.
I just really hope that everyone stays as safe as possible down there! What are you looking forward to in the Olympics this summer?
How do you feel about Olympic spoilers? It doesn’t really affect my personal enjoyment much if I know the outcome beforehand, but I know some people get really upset about it!
