London 2012 Olympics

by Tamu McPherson


With all the buzz surrounding the London 2012 Olympics, I thought that I would do a little post to get into the spirit of the games.
I’m officially on vacation starting today (yeah, yeah, yeah), and I’m really looking forward to checking out the Olympic games this weekend from the comfort of my sofa in East Hampton. Which sport will I be watching? Track and field. I ran the 200, 400 and 800m’s in high school. I was minutes away from state and national titles, which translates into “I wasn’t very fast.” But my coach said that I had a very beautiful stride, and, I  made a ton of great friends while competing. Back to the Olympics. Another MAJOR reason that I will be tuning in is because fellow Jamaican Usain Bolt will be defending his 200m title as well as competing in the 100m individual and 4 x 100 relay.  It’s going to be spectacular as Bolt is competing against teammate and sprint rival Yohan Blake. Records are expected to be broken. I can already see the sea of Jamaican flags flying in the bleachers. Swoon!
Are you following the Olympics? Rooting for anyone in particular? What sports do you play?
