Did anyone else see the 18 year old Tunisian swimmer win the men's 400 freestyle last night from lane 8? Absolutely incredible. His reaction so sweet and genuine!
I did. Aside from rooting for most of the USA team, my favorite is when someone unexpected wins or someone with a unique or sad story or limited resources. I love the Olympics. This time change is killing me though. Either I move into a cave with no electricity or the media is determined to ruin every event for us.
I love the unexpected wins too, the althletes who overcome adversity.
I had a boss once who said all the people who were not among the elite had no place at the Olympics. He said they ruined it. Needless to say, he was not an empathetic person, quite the opposite. He clearly did not understand what the Olympics are all about in my opinion.
