It is time for the Summer Olympics! This year, the events are in London and I can’t wait to watch them. I love watching the record setting performances by these amazing athletes. I think Usain Bolt can run a sub 9.50 100m race. With Michael Phelps racing so well last time, I found the swimming events to be fun to watch too. This will be the first time that I try to watch the rowing events and truly understand what it takes to compete at that level.

Today’s link is to a list of 25 inspirational Olympic moments in the last 100 years. There are some very memorable performances listed and some that will surprise you. Good stuff!
