In Topic: Best Olympic moment

17 August 2016 - 02:38 PM

 

Two come to mind:

 

1.  Kristin Armstrong winning the women's cycling time trial for the third straight time...with her young son watching and seeing her holding him after the finish.  Unreal.

 

2.  Greatest Olympic moment of my life was watching Bob Beamon in Mexico City break the long jump record by well over a foot...a record that stood for over 22 years.  Is there another record in T&F that stood that long? 

 

Worst:

 

Watching the two US sprinters in '68 get stripped of their medals as they didn't stand at attention during the national anthem. 

 

This is fun, Winter:

 

Franz Klammer in '76 (?) hanging it all out in the downhill and winning in his homeland. 

 

 

1980 US Hockey team.

 

 +1000

A bunch of fuzzy memories, and a crate full of crew shirts and WP jackets that seem to have shrunk over the years....

 

+1 and a bunch of Mount Gay hats, a couple scars, and a concussion
