Do the Olympics Make You Dream?
The Olympic Games kick off tomorrow morning in Beijing. Watching the athletes compete for the gold and hearing their personal stories always makes us think of what we want to passionately pursue.
Tell us about your favorite Olympic story, and what watching the games means to you. Does it make you want to pursue your dreams (whether they're athletic or not?)
despite the commercialization and over hyped sob stories, there's always one or two athletes that I 'latch on' to and find inspiring.
On the other hand, the Olympics is also a painful reminder: , that I never tried hard enough, of dreams left unfulfilled, of growing older... so with me there's always a sense of sadness too.
I LOVE the Olympics! I had dreams of being in the Track Olympics but my freshman year I got a severe case of shin splints and my dreams were shattered! But training for the Olympics requires a rigorous training schedule, so I didn't love track that much anyway..
Olympians are the closest thing we have to superheros, and I would love to be a superhero!
