Olympics. Olympics. Olympics. It is gearing up to be that time when all we do is breathe sports and fascination. Argue with judges over scoring like we are suddenly experts and they can hear us thousands of miles away.
Whenever the Olympics is on, it’s like a whole new person comes alive and suddenly makes me very invested in swimming, diving, or whatever event I happen to be watching. On normal days I don’t care much about most sports if I’m honest, but that always changes when the Olympics is on.
Suddenly, a switch is flipped and I don’t care about anything else. I will happily sit into the late and early hours just to watch an event. That time is rapidly approaching us because the Tokyo Olympics kicks off on July 23rd.
All of these different athletes are coming together over their love of sports to gain recognition for a skill that they have dedicated their lives to. I can’t imagine it has been easy, but full of hardships along with wins and some bittersweet moments as well. They deserve all the claps and support we can give them.
