Sure rub it in that you get to see the events live!! Here in the US, NBC has decided that we should see them in the evening instead of live...ridiculous if you ask me!
I got the chills when I saw that pic. I just love athletes that work hard and get deserved results. Not to cocky, just proud and happy. Usain Bolt actually stopped an interview when the US anthem was playing out of respect. I thought that was incredibly respectful.
As far as Michael Phelps go, I would like to introduce him to my daughter, but alas, I don't think they run in the same circles.
