If you were to be in the Olympics, what would your sport be?

It would be hard to determine mine, ever if I were the right age for it. First, all the outdoor sports would be out, as I can't stand heat. I realize that hasn't been a problem in London, but training would have been in the heat.

In fact, the rules would have to be reversed, so the worst performance would win. Then I might have a chance. If so, I choose [un]synchronized swimming. My next choice might be rowing in a circle [if I could splash myself if it was hot]. Or I could jump out of a helicopter the way the Queen did.

I would do diving!

I actually did dive when I was in high school. Never stayed with it enough to be spectacular but I had potential :)

I love watching diving til this day. It's my fave!

Second in line would be gymnastics.

I was a swimmer, soccer player, and distance runner in college, so any of those would be fun if I could shed 40+ years. I also played footbal in High school--it was just the "thing" and was a really good shot playing basketball but wasn't tall enough for college to get a shot at it--I still hold my High school scoring record.

I would do Track and Field. I used to be a pretty good high jumper back in high school :) These are probably one of my favorite to watch too. My heart starts beating so fast and I get nervous for the runners!

But my very favorite sport to watch is gymnastics. It amazes me. I could never do it because I am a giant at 5'10" tall, but I like to live vicariously through them :)

I realized since I posted the topic that any sport where I couldn't wear my glasses would be a big problem. So that pretty much leaves me with nothing.

If I had some control over the Olympics, I'd have the men in lots of the sports be topless, especially the gymnasts.

I love to swim and I'm in the pool at least 3 days a week, but I don't swim "correctly" since I've never had lessons. I love to watch the gymnastics and equestrian events. I have always longed to have a horse.

I'm extremely uncoordinated so I was never into sports as a kid.

As for running, if you ever see me running you better start too because there's something after me. :p

I had swimming lessons, but stopped swimming correctly when I let my hair grow for over 10 years. No cap is 100% waterproof & the back of my neck stayed damp for hours. You CAN do a side-stroke or breast-stroke with your head entirely out of the water. And you can wear glasses while doing them as well. You just can't go fast or anything. This was at a lake & the glasses were added when I learned what I thought was a floating stick actually was a water snake. It was harmless, but still ...
