London 2012 Summer Olympic Games


We had a great Olympic year : ) And though I'm sad that they're over, I'm counting down the days (not literally) to the Sochi, Russia 2014 Winter Olympic Games

Even though my family has never been crazy about sports, we're die-hard Olympic fans! I mean we get crazy in the living room during the competitions. For two weeks the television was on all day from morning to midnight with never-ending reports and updates.

Here are some of my favorite Olympic moments.

Swimming

Michael Phelps awarded "Greatest Olympian of All Time" from FINA with a total of 22 medals, 18 of them gold.

U.S. swimmers Missy Franklin, Rebecca Soni, Dana Vollmer and Allison Schmitt pose on the podium with the gold medal after winning the women's 4x100 medley relay final.

Gymnastics

US Men's Olympic Gymnastics Teams. I was disappointed that they lost, but they gave it their best.

(Great Britain) Bronze medalists Sam Oldham, Kristian Thomas, Max Whitlock, Louis Smith and Daniel Purvis after the medal ceremony in the Artistic Gymnastics Men's Team final. 
These guys were AMAZING and I was so happy that they won the bronze.
