Welcome to Libby's Musings

So, have you been watching the Olympics? I've had a chance to catch some of my favorite sports, and learn more about ones I don't see much.

I was amazed that badminton players can hit the shuttle at 200 mph! The endurance of the distance runners is remarkable. And can you imagine training for the triathalon--swimming, biking and running? Although, apparently one of the sponsor's of the Australian Snowsill who won gold in women's triathathalon is a chocolate company. Now there's a sweet reward for training! Michael Phelps was absolutely beyond incredible in the pool. And more water sports -- the beautiful dives are incredible, and then with the synchronized diving, two athletes moving as one! Wow!

I'm looking forward to Tuesday morning's Dressage Freestyle Final--watching those horses and riders perform to music is just amazing, and knowing a bit about the sport makes me appreciate it even more.

I hope you take a few minutes to cheer on your country's athletes, watch your favorite sport and maybe one you've never watched before to see learn a bit more about something new.

Talk to you later!
