The Golden Girls of the Games

The year of the woman. How can a chick not get inspired after watching
the 2012 Olympic Games in London. I’ve stayed up way too late every
night trying to catch the races, matches, and games. I am constantly
checking the sports highlights on my phone. With Team USA holding the
top of the medal count at 102, these games are worth being tired for.

Here are some of my favorite highlights.

The United States Woman’s gymnastics team wins Gold. Gabby Douglas wins gold in the woman’s all around!

The United States Woman’s Swimming team did well. Missy Franklin earning 4 gold medals and Allison Schmitt winning 3.

The United States Woman’s basketball team won it’s 5th straight
consecutive gold.

United States Woman’s Beach Volleyball Gold and Silver in
the all USA final match!!!

United States Woman’s soccer wins gold defeating Japan.

United States Woman’s 4×100 wins gold and shattered the world record
with a 40.82. Beating the previous record by 0.55 seconds.

United States Woman’s 4×400 wins gold with a 3 minute 16:82 second finish. The next closest team finished in 3.36 seconds after team USA. This was the fifth straight gold victory for team USA in this event. This
also a third gold medal for Allyson Felix. Felix earned gold in both
the 4×100 and the 4×400 in London.

Of the 102 medals, 44 of them were gold. Of the 44 gold, over half at
29, were won by USA women athletes!!!

Go Girls!!! You have definitely earned the right to be called GOLDEN! I can’t help but wonder we have in store for future games.

Happy polishing ladies 🙂 🙂 🙂
