I’m not ashamed to admit that I get pretty stoked and giddy each time the Olympics come around. Summer or Winter, I love them all. I’m always amazed and inspired at what each athlete is trying to accomplish. I can only imagine the training, the sweat, and determination they pour in to just make it to the Olympics. Like most, I have my favorite events and favorites athletes.
Top on my list for the Winter Olympics are Short Track and Figure Skating. A definite draw for short track is Apolo Ohno. To put it simply, he’s adorable. As sad as I am that this is his last skate at the Olympics, there is another cutie taking his place, J.R. Celski. I watched with great anticipation and nerves Saturday night when the two skated for gold in the Men’s 1500m Short Track. I was a little disappointed that U.S. did not get gold, but it was nice to have three Asian athletes medal.
Enough about short track. Check out all the other Asians representing (USA) in this year’s Winter Olympics.
