Beijing Olympic Events

London 2012 Olympics: Queen Elizabeth's eldest granddaughter, Zara Phillips, will be representing Great Britain in the eventing at the London Olympics. Phillips, 31, will ride High Kingdom on her Olympic eventing debut, having missed Athens and Beijing because of injuries to previous horse Toytown.


14.1 h.h. Theodore O'Connor- Karen O'Conner's top U.S. Beijing Olympic hopeful for Eventing. Despite his small stature, this large pony ran and won against the big guys. Sadly he never made it to the games due to a freak accident unrelated to the sport... R.I.P. super-pony.

Mark Spitz won seven gold medals at the 1972 Summer Olympics, an achievement only surpassed by Michael Phelps who won eight golds at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Spitz set new world records in all seven events in which he competed, a record that still stands. Since the year 1900, no other swimmer has ever gained so great a percentage of all the medals awarded for Olympic events held in a single Games.


My all time favorite gymnast--Shawn Johnson. Love her & was so disappointed when she announced her retirement. The Olympics will never be the same.
