No doubt, swimming has captured us all this year thanks to the amazing abilities of one Michael Phelps. He is some kind of super hero – or quite possibly some X-men mutant. And, the feeling of watching that boy win his 8th gold medal. Well, he was a swimmin’! (Think Forrest Gump.)
But, there are Olympic events that baffle me. Here are a few.
1. Synchronized diving. So you can dive. Why do you have to do it at the same time as someone else?
2. Trampoline. Really? Who can’t do a flip on a trampoline?
3. Badminton. Had I known this sport would make it into the Olympics, I would have honed my skillz more in middle school P.E.
4. Weightlifting. Watching a barbell go from the ground to above someone’s head just doesn’t entertain me.
Any events make you go hmmm?
What has been your favorite Olympic moment?
Or, are you a non-watcher?
