Mine are the Men's and Women's gymnastic comps. When the USA is in the hunt I'm on the edge of my seat.

Gymnastics have always been my favorite, both men and women. The uneven bars and the vault.

Track and swimming, sprints in both, up to 200 yds/m.
That's what I competed in but obviously NOT at the same level... /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
My younger brother was a diver.

Gymnastics, no doubt...at least until they get pool as an olympic sport.

Boxing and Basketball. Except this year's basketball team is pathetic.

Umm, I never forget. LOL Or I'm going somewhere, not fast but get there all the same. What do you mean?

I've always loved gymnastics because gymnastics was stressed in high school until I got too tall for the uneven parallel bars.

I totally relate to swimming as I grew up with a pool and used to swim 2 miles a day in the summer on my own and competed on 3 teams throughout the years from 8th grade to senior year. Ask Danny Barouty who the "real pool shark" is. I gave him half the pool length at the Riv and still beat him - and from starting in the water, too. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Rowing was my most successful sport having been a National Champion in single sculls as a consolation prize for finishing 6th in the Olympic Trial fnals in pairs without coxswain with Karin Constant - then an East German defector. Boy, were we a mismatched pair that kicked a$$ in those trials!! And gawd, I'm dating myself!

But the one sport the really fascinates me is synchronized swimming. You have to have some serious lung capacity and strength to be good at that sport!!

Telifilo was awesome. Could you imagine the amount of money he would have made had he defected? Definitely had World Champion written all over him. I think he won the Olympic Gold 3 times and who knows how many World Championships.
