My Olympic Sport Would Be...


Synchronized Swimming

If the Olympic gods called me up and said,

"You will be given a chance to come to Beijing and compete in one sporting event and you will instantly be miraculously really really good, like Michael Phelps good, what event would you like to be in?"

Synchronized Swimming.

I love the water. I love being in the water. If I believed in reincarnation I would've been a mermaid in a previous life. The body in motion in water is so ethereal. Also, I can hold my breath for a really long time underwater. Whenever i am in a pool, i always try testing myself to see if i can swim the length of ANY pool underwater. So far, So good. See I'm a mermaid. Or if i was Zoolander I would say, MerMan, MERMAN!
Synchronized Swimming is such an artistically graceful sport, plus you get to wear sparkly swimsuits and lots of red lipstick. It's the pretty sport.
You also have to be really good at doing flips and kicks and so it also takes great athletic ability to be a synchronized swimmer. It's the perfect combination of beauty and athleticism.
What would your sport be?

I am the same way with the water. I hold my breath, I swim the length of the pool, I never want to get out, I just love water! As a child my mom called me the fish. It would have been nice if she called me the mermaid, don't you think? :)
So I'm going to copy your answer, thank you very much.

I'm thinking I could try the trampoline--and then puke all the m&m's that I've eaten from all the spins!

I'd have to go with gymnastics, specifically the parallel bars. None of that annoying arm flailing from the other gymnastics events for me. Just give me some monkey bars and and a glorified swimsuit lacquered to my a@#$.

I've thought long and hard about this one...my friend and I think the only events we could REALISTICLY still compete in are archery and shooting, however, my dream event is beach volleyball. You will have to ask this question again during the winter Olympics 'cuz I've decided for that one too! :)
