Olympic Dreams



For me, the Olympics is always about more than the competition; it is about the stories behind the competitors.

Ladies…and gents…get your Olympic inspiration here.  I know I have. 

We already know everything we need to know about Michael Phelps–nothing less than phenomenal, I grant you. 

But take a look at these three inspiring women and their stories:

  • Oksana Chusovitina.  Earned a silver medal in gymnastics for the women’s vault.  She is 33 years old.  This is her FIFTH Olympics…unheard of in women’s gymnastics.    
  • Constantina Tomescu Dita. Took gold in the women’s marathon.  Her time: 2:26:44.  She is 38 years old.
  • Dara Torres.  Swimmer.  We’ve heard of her too, but, can I just say three words:  ROCK HARD BODY.  OH, and three more:  41 years old.  Three silver medals in Beijing–career total of 12. 

I’m going back to the gym.  That’s all I have to say about that.
