I love the Olympics. You spend 2 weeks watching all of the sports that you would normally never watch and cheer your country on to victory. It is such a cool global event and always brings out the best in the athletes who compete. The highs and lows you see at the Olympics are truly inspiring and incredible to watch.
Two of my favorite Olympic moments occurred in the 90′s. One was Kerri Strug in ’96 and the other was Derek Redmond in ’92. Both of these athletes overcame injury to finish their event and as a result inspired millions of people around the world. If you haven’t seen either of these, I’ve attached the videos of each below. This is what the Olympics are all about!
If you have any other favorite Olympic moments, please post them in the comments. I’d love to see them!
