Well, they’re over. The Olympics, or at least the sports part of the Olympics, are over. Tonight is the closing ceremony, which is about as much about the Olympics for us sport-lers as information about rubber tracks is about Usain Bolt’s amazing accomplishments. But I promise not to dwell on the hoopla around the Olympics.
What are your thoughts? What were your favorite events? What was the singular most moving accomplishment?.
For me it was the Men’s 4×100 world record performance by the Jamaicans, and the American women’s 4×400 relay — smooth running all around. And Bolt’s 200 and 100 — and it makes me wonder what would happen if he tried the long jump.
