The Sonar Team <3s the Olympics!
Excited for the Olympics? We are too! In honor of tonight’s Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics, we did a quick survey of the events we’re looking forward to the most:
Ximena: Women’s gymnastics, and track and field. I used to do both, so am a little nostalgic!
Shyam: The basketball finals. The USA has the best men’s basketball team it has had in a long time, and bringing home anything but the gold is going to be a disappointment, so I’m looking forward to all the tension and drama associated with the finals game.
Roger: I’m looking forward to the opening ceremony, 100m and 200m sprinting, and the Michael Phelps vs. Ryan Lochte rivalry. Last time’s opening ceremony will be hard to top so it will be interesting to see how London tries to bring it to another level.
Jack: Soccer. My interest in soccer is mostly due to FIFA ‘04, a video game I played with a neighbor.
Brett: Basketball is a no brainer but tumbling (gymnastics) is my dark horse second! I’ve always wanted to be able to do flips.
Mark: Tennis, because I used to play tennis in high school and it’s fun to watch.
Sundi: Volleyball and badminton. I’m looking forward to volleyball because it’s the game I play the most, after cricket. For badminton, I’m a big fan of Sania Nehwal.
Katie: I love the mens rings in gymnastics. How do they do that?? And all the women’s gymnastics.
Seems like gymnastics is a popular sport here on the Sub! That’s all we’ve got for you for this week. Now let the countdown begin!
