Have you ever seen a US Olympic team compete?
Yeah, I have television
Sorry I should have specified. I meant in person.
Yes, we went to the Atlanta games in 1996. We spent five days there seeing a whole variety of events from gymnastics to water polo.
Yes, in 1984. I watched one of the swim events.
London 2012. I went to the rowing, both road cycling events and the Paralympic athletics. I think Americans were involved in every one of them
Yeah sorry I realized I should have been more specific on that.
I watched cycling, volleyball, and diving in Los Angeles. I only got to see ice hockey in Salt Lake City because I was put on bedrest for my pregnancy.
I vaguely remember watching some of the swimming events in Los Angeles.
Lucky! That's when I was just getting going in swim team. I'd wanted to see that. 🏊🏻
That would have been so cool for you to watch!
True, but the diving and volleyball were fabulous!
I've seen Michael Phelps race and the US Men's soccer team play, but not as directly related to the Olympics.
I watched the canoe and kayak slalom trials for London in Charlotte, and plan to again for the trials for Rio.
The white water park in Charlotte us impressive!
Yes! I had a membership a couple years ago. So much fun out there.
Cool! We took our church youth groups over there from Raleigh. It was the trip the kids anticipated every year.
