Hello everyone. It has been a long time coming but we finally are getting the 2020 Olympics from Tokyo. I love the Olympics and among the few sports added this year there is surfing, Karate, and skateboarding. Tony Hawk was on board to talk about the sport and how the judges would be scoring. I love seeing some water polo and track and field events. Not to take away from swimming, diving, or any of the team sports.
Gymnastics has always been a favorite of mine. Popularized by the 1992 US women’s team and who could forget the 1996 women’s team when Dominique Moceanu did her floor exercise to The Devil Went Down to Georgia. I love watching the men and women in this as the 4 exercises they perform take a tremendous amount of physical and mental training.
Gymnast Laurie Hernandez is at the games showing just how hard it is to compete at this level and goes through the pain and punishment ones body goes through to be able to stick those landings. It is a great time and I can’t wait to catch some great Olympic events from Tokyo. What are your favorite events? Sound off below and let us know!
