Beijing Olympics '08 by lguan, Aug 25, 2008, 11:07:16 AM Journals / Personal Mood: Neutral I sat here tapping on my desk deciding what to say in this journal entry for several seconds, before actually writing anything. I honestly don't know how to use English words to describe the amazement that the Beijing Olympics were able to bring, but I'm going to give it my best ;).
The US brought home 110 medals - 36 gold, 38 silver, 36 bronze. Well I'm proud to say that I'm glad my country got the most medals, but all the athletes did great. China, 100 medals, and 51 GOLD MEDALS! That's incredible. China was really great this year. The opening ceremony wowed the shit out of me, the closing ceremony wowed the shit out of me as well. It takes a shitload of guts for any athlete in any country to be able to particupate in the Olympics and to be able to do their best under all the pressure.
We all know Michael Phelps? The dolphin shaped like a human? Wow, so much recognition and fame in two weeks. That 1/100 of a second win was so impressive. Athletes like him are real role models. It's amazing that he used to be bullied as a kid from what he looked like. People like him are real aspirations to be able to go through all that and still be able to pursue their dreams. HELL, he's a chick magnet AND an athlete now. It is a shame that he was unable to be at the closing ceremony in Beijing - he was in London instead. And is it just me, or have a lot of you been noticing that famous people's parents split up when they're young. It must be awkward knowing that your ex-wife or ex-husband is the father or mother of a famous celebrity and feel regretful for leaving someone with such great talent and success.
Olympics for doing their best, gold winning or not ;D.
