Weekend Reading – the greatness of Michael Phelps, Clara Hughes and some fine blogs
Are you serious? 16 Olympic gold medals? 20 Olympic medals overall? Superhuman really. Congratulations to Michael Phelps on becoming the most decorated Olympian ever. The scary part is, before these London 2012 Games are over, he might win a couple more medals.
In other greatness to recognize this week although she fell short of her goal to win a medal during these London 2012 Games, congratulations for an A+++ effort goes out to Clara Hughes, in my opinion Canada’s greatest Olympian. Don’t believe me? Visit her site and check out this video below to understand why. What an outstanding role model for all Canadians.
Here’s to Clara Hughes and all our Canadian athletes in London, making us proud, Citius, Altius, Fortius!
Enjoy the Olympics, the long weekend and of course, the great blogs that make up this Weekend Reading edition.
