Anthony Navetta Olympics

Has everyone been keeping up with the Olympic Time Trials for Track & Field? The trials ended on July 1st and it looks like there will be another interesting crop of competitors representing Team USA.

As I mentioned in an earlier blog post (Traveling by Anthony Navetta), one of my favorite memories was my trip to Atlanta to witness the 1996 Olympic Games. I was in attendance for the 200m finals where Michael Johnson set a new world record.

Though I unfortunately will be unable to make it to London, I will be sure to tune in to watch every event on TV.
