I first started watching the Summer Olympics back in 2004, when it took place in Athens, Greece. One of the sports that caught my attention was gymnastics. Even though I can’t do gymnastics at all, I always enjoyed watching both the men and the women’s teams over the last 12 years or so. Some of my favorites from the 2004 and 2008 Summer Olympics were Paul and Morgan Hamm, Carly Patterson, Shawn Johnson, Nastia Likun, to name a few.
I finally got to watch gymnastics in person and it was awesome! I took three of my sisters, ages 7-17 and we all had fun. They added today’s music and some dance moves to their routines.
I think my highlight was getting an autograph from Shawn Johnson. Here’s a picture of that.
