During the past two weeks the world watched as athletes from different countries competed in various Olympic Games such as figure skating, skiing, snowboarding, skeleton, and others. The fascination for these sports only grew when the athletes showed their passion for their sport.
You could also see their competitiveness in going for the gold while representing their country. The amount of dedication, motivation, and focus were astounding in the Games, even though not every sport and athlete could win a medal. As a figure skater who works every weekend, I saw how the Olympics encouraged others to try out figure skating and other sports. Adding to my curiosity, I asked a few students in class about which sport has drawn their attention the most. The gold medalist was skiing, coming in second was figure skating with silver, and making it in third with bronze was snowboarding. Not only was it interesting to see how the Games inspired millions across the globe, but it was also a great thing to see the pride that every athlete had when a medal.
