If You Were an Olympian…

The Olympics has been opened and the games are under way. Did you watch the opening? I was not able to do so, I am sure it was grand.

Months before the Olympics, I had doubts, like what I have written here and here not because I doubt China’s ability to host the event but because of pollution situation and of the different events happening leading to the big event itself.

The Weekly Question #12 would be in relation to the Olympics:

If you were an Olympian, what sport would you be participating in?

My Answer:

If I were an Olympian, I would like to imagine myself as a gymnast, specifically doing the floor exercise.

I know, this dream is really way off and this even sounds weird to me. I have not even experienced being a gymnast but had it been possible when I was younger, I would have loved to be one (long hours training and all included).

But seriously, gymnastics is one of the major sport events that I love watching in the Olympics.

I love to look at the gymnasts doing their moves: turning, tumbling, doing acrobatic poses to the beat of music that will make the audience wish they could do whatever it is they are doing. That audience includes me since I am not a gymnast πŸ˜€

What about you? If you were an Olympian, what would be your sport?
