When I think of the word Olympian, I think of a passionate work ethic and incomparable dedication.
Capturing a gold medal is the ultimate feel-good moment that reminds you that you are the greatest in the world at what you do.
There are a select number of athletes that have taken their sport to the next level. They not only have conquered the revered gold medal but have gone on to reinforce their solidified presence with a repeat in the following Olympics. These are what I call freaks.
Olympians are an ideal representation of their country, and there is nothing greater than capturing gold for your country.
With exactly one month until they start, the anticipation of London 2012 has begun to drown out my attention span for anything else. There is not a better two weeks in the calendar year than that of the Olympics.
That being said, let the games begin!
