Here are some of the reasons that I cannot wait to watch the 2016 summer Olympics:
1. The opening ceremony
My family and I love to get together to watch the opening ceremony together. I love to see what each country comes up with and how they added their culture to the ceremony. I also like to watch the excitement that the athletes have as they get ready to compete.
2. Uncommon sports
You can always catch a game of baseball or basketball on TV but how often can you watch archery, diving, shooting or rowing for example? I love to watch gymnastics, diving and in the winter, all of the unusual sports.
3. Inspiring athletes
How can you not be inspired by the best athletes in the world? Seeing people run crazy fast in the Olympics is so amazing. Hearing that a swimmer trains so many hours in a day. It is something that most of us could not do and therefore, it inspires me.
4. A fun family event
I love that the Olympics is something that brings my family together. As I said before, I typically am not one to watch sports but I love watching the Olympics. My mom and sister are like me with sports but we all enjoy getting together and watching the Olympics.
5. The opportunity to learn
Every time that I watch the Olympics, I learn so much. I learn about different countries culture. I learn statistics about different sports that I would never had heard anywhere else. Also, I love hearing the different stories about athletes that have overcome hard times and about their lives and training.
