Can we talk about something?
I love the Olympics Games – especially the Summer events. I can’t get enough of Gymnastics, of Swimming, of BeachVolleyball and Women’s Soccer. During the weeks the games grace my TV, I have them on so I can hold my breath as the athletes push their mental and physical limits, as they chase their dreams.
I watch them focus, triumph, falter and grasp for gold, silver and bronze.
I celebrate with them. I cry with them. And I respect them all – for their effort and their team spirit.
And, it is for these reasons, in part, that I am struggling with much of NBC’s coverage of the Olympic Games.
For example, take how they handled gymnasts Jordyn Wieber and Aly Raisman.
