Love it . . . Keep it Olympians

February 25, 2010

Well, I had a great time in San Francisco and now I'm on my way back home to Michigan...where I think we have a few more feet of snow since I left! I haven't had much time to watch the Olympics (so sad!) because I've been so busy...and also because they are on so late at night! What's up with that NBC?

Anyway, there have been a few Olympians that have really impressed me and even brought tears to my eyes, so welcome to Love it Keep it Olympians! First up, Joannie Rochette, a figure skater from Canada.

Joannie's mom died right after arriving in Vancouver for the Olympics. Two days later Joannie skated her short program and placed 3rd. She still has to compete tonight. I can't even imagine suffering such a tragedy right before the Olympics. And she still skated...for her mom. So sad and moving. Throughout her entire program, the audience clapped and cheered for her, which was so sweet. Love Joannie!

And of course we need to talk about Apolo Ohno...he is such a good sport. He smiles regardless if he wins gold or bronze. He has such great Olympic spirit! And now he's the most decorated winter Olympian....go Apolo!

And of course I'm lovin' team USA's Men's Nordic Combined Relay Team! They took home silver and it was the first time the US has ever placed in the event! They were so fun to watch!

And who doesn't love Lindsay Vonn? She is so cute. And such a great athlete! She brought home the first gold for USA in this Olympics. Keep her!

And last, but not least, John Shuster, the Skip for the Men's Curling Team. He was taken off the team because of his "poor" performance...and yet he still had a great attitude. He wanted to do what was best for the team. Luckily, he was put back on, and even though the US is not going to take home any medal, he is still out there showing great spirit.

Love all the Olympians! I am so sad to see the Olympics come to an end.

What are you lovn' and keepin' this week?
