2012 Olympics: WINNERS!

Just to name a few…

1. Sanya Richards-Ross wins Gold Medal in Women’s 400-Meter Race.

2. Venus Williams and Serena Williams of the United States celebrate their victory against Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka of the Czech Republic in the gold medal women’s doubles match.

3. Jamaica’s Usain Bolt successfully defended his 2008 gold medal in the 100 meters by setting a new Olympic record of 9.63 seconds.

4. Michael Fred Phelps, now retired, is the most decorated Olympian of all time with 22 medals. Phelps also holds the all-time records for gold medals (18, double that of the next highest record holders), gold medals in individual events (11), and Olympic medals in individual events for a male (13). In winning eight gold medals at the 2008 Beijing Games, Phelps took the record for the most first-place finishes at any single Olympic Games. Five of those victories were in individual events, tying the single Games record. In the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Phelps won four golds and two silver medals.

5.  2012 Olympics – 17-year-old Missy Franklin won gold in both the 100- and 200-meter backstroke, sweeping the backstroke events and won a total of five medals, four of which were gold.

6. And of course – MISS GABRIELLE DOUGLAS!!!!

16-year-old Gabrielle Christina VictoriaGabbyDouglas is a member of the 2012 Olympic U.S. Women’s Gymnastics team. She won gold medals in both the individual and team all-around competitions. She is the first African-American and first woman of color in Olympic history to become the individual all-around champion, and the first American gymnast to win gold in both the individual all-around and team competitions at the same Olympics.

What can I say, I’m proud of everyone but I definitely have a favorite.  😉
