    Michael Phelps is good, that's for sure and he definitely deserves his props! But as a newcomer Gabby Douglas did an excellent job and represented our country well!!

    I was supporting the Hungarian team. My favourite person was Daniel Gyurta. He is an amazing swimmer and a really talented man. I am proud to be from the same nation as him.:)

    I loved watching them in Beijing and loved watching them again in London. I'm sad to see their partnership end, but I'll still be rooting for Kerri Walsh Jennings 4 years from now when she's in Rio.

    Aside from the two of them, I absolutely loved watching the US Women's soccer team play against Canada and Japan.

    Oh we are talking sports? Dang..

    I was hoping someone else would think it is funny.

    I don't think any of them won a medal.

    One cool note. My wife taught one of the young ladies that won a medal in the Olympics. She got an email from her mother. Pretty cool.

    All were great and many others too. These young people are a great example to the world that all people want basically the same things and all have some special gifts they can develope for the good of the many. The leadership is the cause of most conflicts.

    I was especially wanting Phelps to win against him too! He was pretty cocky & smug when he said he wanted to de - thorn Phelps. Ha. No such luck buddy.
