8.8.08

In case you were unaware, the Olympics start today. I happen to be very aware. I don't plan on watching the opening ceremonies tonight because that knife is still a little too sharp. I do hope to be able to enjoy and appreciate the rest of the Games though because that would be unfortunate if I wasn't able to watch some of my friends shine in their moment of glory and be able to feel a sense of pride in my country and the spirit of the Olympics. I found a clip on YouTube of this thing I did for Polo Ralph Lauren when I was in New York earlier this year modeling the village wear and the opening ceremonies outfits. (click here to read that post.) I thought it was fitting to post today, even though I am sitting here in California and not in Beijing, unable to wear the clothes in their proper environment. Oh well...it's still a cool clip!



And while you are in the mood of reading and seeing stuff about me, I did an interview while I was still in Eugene talking about the disappointment of not making the team and if you wish to read it, you can go here at PreRaceJitters.com.

During this same interview, I also taped an interview with a guy named John Davis, who was doing a mini documentary called "OH!" (Olympic Hopefuls). If you'd like to view a portion of that, you can watch that as well. Although, I will warn you that because I had to tape it after I had already competed, I was a little dry and monotone, which is unfortunate because my personality is usually so much better! I mention this only because I think it's important for athletes in our sport to have personality and to be engaging so that more people become interested, and I realize I didn't hold up my end of the bargain here. It's hard to talk about being an Olympic Hopeful after you already know that you haven't made the team. Regardless, here it is...
