I know this blog is supposed to be all about Leah, but I just had to give a nod to one of the best moments I've ever seen on TV!!!!
The US team won the 400 meter freestyle relay, after the French talked smack earlier in the day! Ha! That is right! I've never been that into the Olympics, but my goodness this year I'm addicted and it's because moments like the one last night!!
When the last swimmer, Jason Lezak dove into the pool for the last lap he was trailing behind Frances Alain Bernard, the world record holder. With 20 meters to go, he pulled out from behind to win by 0.08 seconds. The reaction of the rest of the US team, including Michael Phelps was amazing!! We were all screaming in my house, I'm surprised Leah slept through it!! It was a great moment!! If you weren't able to catch it I would definitly try to find it on Youtube! It's worth it!!
On the other hand...US womens gymnastics leaves a bit to be desired. They are the best we have in the US? Ugh.
