    Now that the Olympics are in full swing, what are some of your favorite olympic memories?

    For me, I'd have to say, Kerri Strug finishing the vault on one good ankle and winning the gold for the US was pretty cool. (Though as a Korean American, the entirety of the 1988 Seoul Olympics was fairly special to me too...)

    Izzy and the Atlanta 1996 Olympics. I live close to Atlanta, but much closer to Chattanooga, Tennessee.

    Nice.

    I was a little too young for that, but it is an all-time great moment.
    I went to the '96 Atlanta games and got to see Michael Johnson run with his gold shoes. But my favorite Olympics memory would have to be the original Dream Team. It was better than an All-Star game because they were all so great and they put on a show each and every game.

    My parents taped a video of the opening ceremonies of the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles. Other than watching that and this year's waiting for the US Men's basketball team to play and falling asleep because it was badminton and then tennis, none.

    Watching Michael Phelps this year has been pretty memorable for me. Especially that race where the U.S. team beat the French.
