I thought I’d share a photo I ran across yesterday that made me smile. I don’t know who to credit it to, but it’s a fantastic shot.
I think I found this photo so pleasing because it combines more than one thing I love and appreciate. It’s a great melding of of themes…love of country, pride in a job well done, the joy of high calibre competition and a celebration of the pinnacle of physical accomplishment.
I’ve had the chance to sit down and catch a few of the Olympic events which I enjoyed watching immensely. It doesn’t matter what sport, I find them all entertaining and compelling at the Olympic level. I’ve watched bits and pieces of track and field events, water polo, equestrian events, volleyball, rowing (my shoulders burned just watching those guys work), wrestling, soccer, open ocean swimming and gymnastics.
Soon, the games will be over but I’m delighted that I got a chance to see the fruits of all the hard work, athletes the world over, put into their respective sports. I find it energizing and inspiring!
