Welcome to Wondering Wednesdays, a weekly post to learn more about me and other bloggers 🙂 If you’re a blogger, please join in every week!

Today’s questions is –  Do you enjoy watching the Olympics? What is your favorite sport at the games?

I LOVE watching the Olympics!!! I have since I was a kid. As I have grown older, I recognize more than ever how much energy, time, training, and willpower goes into being an Olympian, and I think that makes me love it even more. But I also feel like the Olympics bring our country together, with everyone sharing a common goal – cheer on the US Team. That’s a cool feeling too.

When I was younger, I only really paid attention to gymnastics and figure skating. And to this day, those are still my favorites, but I really enjoy watching all the sports. I love seeing people work hard to win for themselves, for their country. I’ve watched a few local people participate in the Olympics. I went to school with an Olympian, and although we aren’t friends today, I still watched her and cheered her on. Our whole town did actually – they had a huge TV set up in a local gymnasium where anyone could come watch and just enjoy cheering together. It was pretty cool.

I enjoy watching swimming, diving, soccer, skiing, snowboarding, and so much more. Basically, I don’t discriminate. Summer or winter, I love them all. We’ve been watching the Olympic trials this year as a family when we can. That’s not something I’ve done a lot of in the past, but have really enjoyed doing this year and plan on doing in the future. And while the Olympics are going to look and feel totally different this year for everyone involved, we’ll still be watching in little Cooperstown, NY, cheering on team USA. Watching our favorite Olympians go for gold. Watching teams work as a unity. Seeing records crushed and dreams made. It may be different, but it’ll still be fun to watch. This girl cannot wait.

What about you? Do you like watching the Olympics? What are some of your favorite events?

    Not much of a sports person, so as a general rule I don’t follow them.
