NBC has been airing the Olympic Trials for the 2012 Summer Games in London and it’s got me pumped for the start of them at the end of July.
I love the Olympics, especially track and field. Something about that sport and others like it where it’s just an athlete and their body. No balls, sticks, or bats, just your body and the training you’ve put in to be the best you can be.
If you’ve watched any of the coverage, there’s a cool commercial by Nike about woman athletes. The ad celebrates how far women have come in sports.
Women have had to overcome so much in life, not to mention being an athlete.
Also, check out a piece on Lolo Jones and then watch as she secures a spot on the team to London for a chance at redemption in the Olympics. Inspiring videos!
