Are you as excited about the Summer Games as we are? The amazing athletes in London are giving us something to cheer about as we head into the dog days of summer. In case you’ve missed out on the fun, here are some our favorite moments so far:
- Michael Phelps swimming his final race to win gold and retire as the most decorated Olympian of all time with a total of 22 medals, 18 gold.
- The Fab 5 taking gold in gymnastics for the first time since 1996.
- Usain Bolt sprinting 100m to gold in just 9.63 seconds. Wow, that’s fast!
- Gabby Douglas aka “The Flying squirrel” becoming the first black Olympic gold medalist in the all-around gymnastics competition.
It’s not all about winning. Double amputee Oscar Pistorius was an inspiration for millions even when he did not make the finals for the 400-meter race. The world watched as Grenada’s Kirani James asked to exchange bib numbers with Pistorius as a gesture of admiration and respect.
