I love the drama of the Olympics and this time around has not disappointed. I always feel bad for those who have spent the 20,000 hours of training to get the Olympics and then have a bad day and lose. Somehow it just doesn’t seem fair.
If you are like me 40,000 hours would not be enough to make me Olympic material. However, with the wonders of modern technology you can find out which one of the over 10,000 athletes from 205 countries is most like you. Find yours here
My match is Chieh Min Fang a Badminton player from China. So glad they didn’t match me with a woman weightlifter:)
Enjoy your discovery!!
Some of my favourite Olympic Moments include:
Watching Daley Thompson
Greg Joy’s Silver Medal in Montreal in 1976 (We were one of the few countries ever to host an Olympics not to win a Gold medal. Since then we have made that right in Calgary and Vancouver)
The Redemption of the 1996 Men’s 4×100 Relay
P.S. When you find out who you are like let me know:)
