All Olympians are worthy of RESPECT

Watching the Olympics and there's always that part of me that shouts "Oh, no! How could you miss that step?!"

And then the reasonable part of my brain kicks in with "She just flipped three times, leapt 15 feet in the air, spun around four times and LANDED ON HER FEET! How the crap did she not break every bone in her body?!"

That could be any sport. I mean, Synchronized Diving seems kind of weird, but holy cow, you see these guys move in total sync and slip into the water with barely a splash - that's serious mastery of skill.

Even the bad Olympians pour their hearts into their craft and can pull off skills the rest of us would suck at on a good day, and would kill ourselves on a bad day.

I have the utmost respect and admiration for the Olympians (yes, even the ones who are total arseholes back home).
