Jaw Dropping

Olympics are a time to show of amazing talent and athletic ability. These 2012 games in London are no exception.There have definitely been highs and lows. Moments that made you cringe and moments that were literally jaw dropping as well. 

First, McKayla Maroney-Her practically perfect vault during the Team Competition

This isn’t a very good video so Click here to see a high quality video at real speed. But the best part was the judges reaction. She can’t believe it either!

Usain Bolt-The fastest man in the world recently set  a new world record for the 100 meter dash. 9.58 seconds! Here is a video of him winning gold in the 200 meter final in London

Ally Maisman-Her gold winning routine in the Floor Exercise Final. Just amazing! Especially the first tumbling pass.
(So I can't find the actual performance from London but I'm pretty sure this is an identical routine.)

And finally. You hate to see this happen. A German Diver, Stephan Feck, lands on his back and apparently scores straight zeros for his effort. Poor Guy!

What are your favorite moments from the olympics?

  1. I've only been watching th olympics in the mornings. I end up seeing really weird sports, women's weight lifting, two person canoeing (I think that's what it's called), and some weird bike racing. But! Yesterday, I saw what appeared to be a drill team in th water. It. Was. Awesome.
