Every two years, I am reminded of my complete athletic ineptitude when the Olympics rolls into town. No matter, I still love to watch and fervently root for Team USA, regardless of sport (except maybe dressage. Sorry, Rafalca.).
Even more than watching our current history makers, though, I love to relive the legendary moments that built heroes and, in some cases, villains.
I've started collecting some of these moments and am posting them to Vialogues (find them by searching "#Olympics"). The first is the controversial boxing bout between Roy Jones, Jr. and Park Si-Hun in the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, Korea. If you don't know about it, be prepared to restrain yourself because it might make you want to punch your computer screen.
The second video features that beautiful moment when Kerri Strug was literally exalted as an inspiration and supreme competitor in the 1996 summer games in Atlanta.
What were some of your favorite moments in Olympics history? Respond with your vialogue in the comments!
