pretty cool if you ask me. I remember as a kid wanting to be an Olympian. Too bad I realized I suck at sports...

cool for You. I also always thought I will go to the Olympics...I played field hockey....very good actually...but at the age of 13 I refused to go the AllStar practise, cos it was on the same day as my hometown team´s practise....I didn´t want to drop the team....3 years later when my parents separated...the team started to talk bull about me behind my back...not everyone of course....but it hurt...so I quit...A girl was playing on the Youth National team by that time who was in Allstar Practise all the time....and I beat her all the time......

did You meet the girl? I´ve met two track athletes....Heike Drechsler (German long jump Olympic Champion...she probably doped when she was still a GDR Athlete) and Marion Jones (the nicest person You could ever meet) who has been disgraced since...it doesn´t matter to me...This woman inspired me to be more active in sports again, I met friends through her on my website and she was just toooo nice when I met her...

Olympic Champions are great...there´s nothin better than the Olympics

No, I didn't get to meet her.

I did, however meet Mark Spitz. Nice man. It was a few years ago at an airport. My mom went up to him and started talking to him.
