If there’s something that I HATE, it’s seeing HATE on Jordyn Wieber tag. ugh. don’t tag your hate!
Twelve Inspiring Moments of 2012:
1. REBOUNDING TO LEAD TEAM TO GOLD
Perhaps one of the most inspiring stories of the London 2012 Olympic Games came with the fall and rise of gymnast Jordyn Wieber. Entering the Games as the reigning world all-around champion, Wieber was expected to be a gold-medal favorite in London. But in a stunning night of competition, Wieber finished fourth, but was third among the U.S. women and Olympic rules stipulate that only two athletes per country can make the all-around final. A teary-eyed Wieber valiantly rebounded two days later for the team competition and helped lead the “Fierce Five” to Team USA’s first Olympic gold medal since the “Magnificent Seven” won back in 1996.
So excited to be a part of Shawn and Derek’s free style tomorrow night! Don’t forget to watch! http://instagr.am/p/Sd-hi4vVvo/
