Olympic Adventures

There is something so singularly amazing about the Olympics.  For me, its not even about the athletic achievement.  But to be there, with those amazing individuals, from the farthest corners of the world—who have trained their whole lives, whose families and communities are standing behind them and cheering them on—to really experience what it is to be a part of excellence and a part of a global community.  That is truly something to behold.  I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of some amazing Olympic teams for the 2008, 2010 & 2012 Olympic Games.    In the rare moments of free time I had during the games, I managed to jot down a few of the more memorable experiences.
