My Favorite Olympian
I didn’t go into the Olympic games with a favorite athlete, but I have one now.
This little powerhouse is amazing! I was able to watch most of the gymnastic events that she competed in and was ecstatic when she finally grabbed a gold the other night on the balance beam.
What I found most fascinating about Shawn wasn’t just her strength and power as a gymnast but it was her character and personality I observed when she wasn’t competing. I noticed that she was always quick to engage with the other competitors, hug them and praise them for their accomplishments.
I love her sweet little personality! And better yet, she looks like a “Who” with her cute little cheeks and nose. How could you not love her?
So who has become your favorite 2008 Olympian?
