My favorite Olympic memory as a kid was watching the magnificent seven win gymnastics gold in 1996 – I recorded it on VHS and would watch that tape over and over while practicing handstands in the living room. For the London games, I’m no longer perfecting a handstand, but we’ve been cheering on Jordyn Wieber (from our hometown area) and Allison Schmitt (from our current town!) and enjoying every minute.
