Friday nights Opening Ceremonies was awesome! I loved all of it, but the programmed drones doing the formations above the Olympic Stadium blew my mind. Then I thought about how RAMTEC at Tri-Rivers is teaching kids to be able to do that right here in Marion.
So Saturday night I woke my wife up with a “Wow!” No, not that! I was watching the Olympics mens snowboard SlopeStyle and American Red Gerard, a Rocky River Ohio native, did a crazy flip and landed it almost perfectly! I said, “Wow” out loud! Blew my mind that a human can do that stuff! Must have blown a few other minds as he won the gold!
Biathlon is crazy with the wind in Pyeong Chang. Many world class athletes are seeing unbelievable challenges and the ones who have the best mental abilities are winning medals. They have very few upsets in this sport... until today.
The mental abilities of these athletes is inspirational. We all have the ability to loose weight, conquer financial goals, win at our careers and really reach for any goal we might set. It’s mostly mental discipline. These athletes have proven if you have the ability, the mental part will put you heads above.
I am blown away by the lack of attendance at the events. I assume it’s the extreme cold weather!
