Much to the disagreement or surprise to my family, swimming is my favorite Olympic sport to watch.
It certainly has been an outstanding sport to follow so far during the 29th Olympic Games being held in Beijing, China this August 2008.
Most of my family selected women's gymnastics, which based on the ages of the youngsters from China and the USA, should be classed as girl's gymnastics. With many sixteen year old gymnasts going on twelve leading the team from China, the term "women" doesn't seem appropriate for the sport, as compared to, women's sand volleyball or many other Olympic sports, for that matter.
One of the most enjoyable aspects of swimming is the fact that both Olympic and world records are on the line each heat or event. We are certainly seeing many records fall, as I type tonight.
