“I was passionate. I found something that I loved. I could be all alone in a big old skating rink and nobody could get near me and I didn’t have to talk to anybody because of my shyness. It was great. I was in my fantasy world.” – Dorothy Hamill
There is something magical about the Olympics … the coming together of opposing countries, the challenge of competing against the best of the best, the highs and lows, the stories of passionate athletes and their supportive family and friends. Magical.
Each Friday we post our favorite videos – the kind we would share with our girlfriends. In honor of the Olympics, we’re celebrating this amazing athletic event that makes countries into FRIENDS.
