You guys may not know this about me, but I love the Olympics. Some people prefer the summer games or the winter games, but I’m just happy when either one comes around every two years. Last time I figured out how to watch from my phone so I could keep up with the games while I was out and about. A friend and I joked that we have a full schedule for the next two weeks- soaking up as much of the Olympics as we can when we’re not at work or asleep!
When I was younger, my mother and sister and I used to follow all of the figure skating competitions and we each had our favorite skaters (mine was Michelle Kwan). Although I don’t keep up with the competitors much anymore, I still love to watch figure skating during the Olympics. In particular, I’ll be keeping an eye on Jason Brown, who had an amazing long program during the US figure skating championships. I also saw a Glitter Guide feature on Gracie Gold, one of the athletes on the US women’s team, so I’ll be following her progress too.
Tell me: Do you watch the Olympics? If so, what’s your favorite sport to watch?
