I was so happy to see that Cordy created this because during the opening ceremony I was looking for some excuse to talk about the Olympics. :)
I love the Olympics, despite being completely uninterested in sports at any other time. Watching individuals who have devoted themselves to a passion makes me really happy. :) It's also beautiful to see athletes from all corners of the world coming together peacefully and in good will.
But onto the questions!
Would you rather preform in the opening ceremony of the hosting country (you can pretend your country is hosting), or carry your nation's flag as everyone walks in during the opening ceremonies? Definitely perform in the opening ceremony. Because I'm so un-athletic, I'd feel wrong carrying the flag, but I'd love to participate in the festivities surrounding the country's history.
Would you rather have to play a game of beach volleyball, or water polo?
Beach volleyball! Water polo would probably kill me. :/ I've always wanted to try volleyball, even though I'd probably be terrible at it.
Would you rather run, or swim, in a relay?
Swim for sure. I was on the local swim team for a few years, so I know some of the swimming jargon. And swimming is just more fun than running.
Would you rather participate in archery or the javelin throw?
Archery! Five words: Robin Hood, Queen Susan, and Legolas.
Would you rather high dive, or execute a synchronized swimming routine?
Probably the synchronized swimming. The individual pressure of diving would be...bad.
Would you rather be on a rowing or sailing team? (In sailing, they sometimes have teams.)
I don't even really know the difference! Sailing sounds fun(?).
Would you rather fence or preform in an equestrian event?
Ooh, I'd have to go with fencing.
Two words: Inigo Mintoya
Would you rather do the poll jump or preform on the (gymnastics) uneven bars?
When you were younger, was there an Olympic sport that you always wanted to compete in? Which was it?
Definitely! I wanted to compete in swimming, gymnastics, or volleyball. I even considered archery for a little bit. I probably wanted to do gymnastics most, but, needless to say, those aspirations didn't really pan out. xD
Thanks for the fun questions, Cordy!!
