Olympic Fever

I love the Olympics! I can't get enough, I will be stumbling around the shop sleep deprived for the next 2 weeks because I am not able to shut off the TV at night.

As a child I always wanted to be a figure skater. After watching hours of skating would I prance around the house doing "triple axles" and skating across the wood floors. Unfortunately the dream never came to fruition because every time I put on skates there was an intense magnetic connection between the ground and my rear. Seriously, physicists should study it.

Lately the sport that draws me is snowboarding; half pipe, snowboard cross, anything, it all looks amazing! Alas the same phenomenon occurs when I strap on a snowboard. Looks like my Olympic participation will be limited to spectating...

We do have some Olympic ties here at Fontana however. Ethiopian cross country skier Robel Teklemariam is a former employee. He is competing in his second Olympics as the sole member of the Ethiopian Olympic team. We wish him the best of luck! For more info on Robel check out the link below.

Enjoy the games!
