With the 2012 Olympics underway, I started thinking the other day, “Hey, I could be an Olympic athlete.” In what, I have no idea but for that full day, I had myself convinced that I could have been on an Olympic team. However, with special thanks to my friends providing me a dose of reality I realized that idea was ridiculous.
These athletes put their heart and soul in to the sport they love. Whether it be water polo, to gymnastics or dressage; this activity is not simply just a “part” of their life, it is their life. And with that said, I will never be an Olympic athlete because I love being able to do and eat what I want.
Good luck to all of those participating in the 2012 Olympic Games! Check out the official London Olympics website to make sure you don’t miss cheering on your team!
