I remember watching the Olympics a lot when I was younger... then I stopped for a few years and lately I have been back...
I'm finding myself a bit sad at these Olympics though... it seems to me that there are a lot of mistakes and falls, and bad performances happening... I'm not blaming the athletes, I think the pressure is just too high and instead of people clearly winning, they are clearly losing.
I hate all the commercialism as well... I know it costs a lot to build these buildings and arenas and such, but when it becomes bigger than the games, it is too much.
I am finding it hard to watch the athleticism and enjoy the amazing abilities of these people who push themselves farther than I can even contemplate. I wish it were more on doing your best rather than win at all costs.
I'm not sure if I am making my thoughts clear, but they are here anyway :)
