I’m so excited that the 2012 London Olympics are so close. Since I almost don’t watch television at all, I don’t have my own TV, but my parents do, so I’ll be watching at their place. I’m probably going to watch more television over the next two weeks than I have all year.
The only other thing I’ve been following on television this year was the European Football Championship.
Last summer Olympics, in Beijing 2008, Sweden’s best contender, swimmer Therese Alshammar, had an embarrassing accident. Just as the race was about to start, she couldn’t close her bathing suit zipper. The other contestants started without her and she didn’t get another chance. It was horrible to watch.
She’s back this year, and is considered to be Sweden’s best hope for a gold medal.
