Olympians in our own backyard
Chris Marlowe, who also lives in my city. Most recently he did play-by-play for the 2012 Olympics beach volleyball broadcasts, which is fitting because he was captain of the gold-medal-winning men's Olympic volleyball team in 1984. He is currently the play-by-play announcer for the Denver Nuggets. He also happens to be a neighbor of that young lady I mentioned earlier!
female swimmers! This is Kara Lynn Joyce, who didn't medal in London but has 4 silver medals from the Olympics in Athens and Beijing.
funny video the US Swim Team made singing to "Call Me Maybe" and cute Missy danced and sang right along!
We didn't stay to try to get autographs because it was HOT and Porter was cranky, but I'm so glad that we attended anyway. What a fun opportunity for our community to come together under happy circumstances and celebrate together!
