I’ve Got Olympic Fever

Linking up for Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday. This week’s theme is Olympic Fever!! First up – my favorite male USA Olympians!

Of course, Ryan Lochte. His abs are all over Pinterest right now.

And then there’s Matt Grevers (the one that proposed to his girlfriend Annie Chandler at a past meet).

Cutie gymnast John Orozco. I just want to pinch his cheeks!

The one and only LBJ. Love him.

And last, but not least, Michael Phelps.

And now for my favorite female USA Olympians. Just warning you, there are lots! 🙂

First up – Lolo Jones. So excited for her to redeem herself in the hurdles this year. Can’t wait for all the track & field events to start on Friday. They are so fun to watch.

The young swimmer, Missy Franklin. So happy she has one gold already! Hopefully more to come too.

The entire gymnastics team – Jordyn Wieber, Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman, Kyla Ross, and McKayla Maroney. One of my favorite Olympic sports. So fun to watch!!

The best part of the gymnastics so far has been watching Aly Raisman’s parents. They are hilarious. You can see a video of them here.

Next up is Misty May Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings. Fierce beach volleyballer players.

And last..my favorite ladies ever  – the women’s national soccer team! I’ve played soccer my whole life so I grew up watching the women’s national team. I’m pretty sure all my soccer friends grew up idolizing Mia Hamm. But these ladies are the next generation of heroes to little girls around the world. Can’t wait to watch them win the gold!

Evan’s favorite (and the rest of the world’s favorite) is Alex Morgan, of course. Star forward and brunette beauty. I swear he would leave me for her if he had the opportunity. Ha. He loves her.

And my favorites – Abby Wambach. She is scary fierce. Nothing stops her.

And Lauren Cheney. Lauren actually went to a high school near mine and played for the Carmel United club program that I played for growing up. She was a year younger so I never got to play with her, but just proud that a fellow Carmel player is representing in the Olympics. Go Lauren!!

Good luck to all of the athletes competing! GO USA!! (and beat China, haha)
