Going for the Gold


Let's flood the votes! Please rate my blog a 5 here and get Bi Like Me to #1. Thanks!

Every 4 years the best of the best are on display for the whole world to see. This year, the USA sends some of the hottest athletes in the world to London giving us the best shot at Gold too.
Four years ago, China won seven of eight gold medals in diving at the Beijing Games. But this year, in London, American David Boudia, who finished 10th four years ago in Beijing, has a chance to give China an upset in the 10-meter platform.

The U.S. Men's Team Gymnastics team has very high hopes this year. The team includes Jake Dalton of Reno, Nev./University of Oklahoma; Jonathan Horton of Houston/Team Hilton HHonors (Cypress Academy); Danell Leyva of Homestead, Fla./Team Hilton HHonors (Universal Gymnastics); Sam Mikulak of Newport Coast, Calif./University of Michigan; and John Orozco of the Bronx, N.Y./Team Hilton HHonors (U.S. Olympic Training Center) and all are predictably hot!

This year, Team USA will see many young, ambitious swimmers come up through the ranks and compete for medals. This makes predictions much more interesting than in previous years because there is a lot more competition for open spots. 

Yes, there's the lean, amazing athlete Michael Phelps..but he may be out shined this year by another swimmer. He lost the 200-meter butterfly for the first time after a nine-year winning streak, and lost to Ryan Lochte in both the 200-meter individual medley and 200-meter freestyle at the 2011 world champs. He has also stated that he will not be swimming eight events at London as he did in Beijing, and this will likely be his last Olympics.

Even through all of this, Michael Phelps is still one of the world's fastest swimmers, and will at least win individual golds in the 100 and 200 butterfly.

That's just a few of the USA medal hopefuls. This should be an Olympics to watch..whether your looking to watch athletics or hot bodies!
