For the love of the game.
I was 10 years old when the US Women’s Gymnastics Team won gold at the 1996 Olympics. That event still remains vivid in my memory today as I watched the current US team compete, probably because as a kid, I participated in gymnastics myself, although no where near the level of these women. I’m happy to say that they’ve won gold again, this year in London! It’s crazy to think that some of these girls are 16 years old, and it’s taken the US team 16 years for them to achieve gold once again in this particular event. I love how crazy-unpredictable this sport is. Ah, it’s so exciting! Congrats to Team Canada for placing 5th as well!
