Gosh, how do the athletes keep it together when they win gold/silver/bronze medals and yet I"m a sobbing mess on the couch during their medal ceremonies. Doesn't matter who it is or what country they are from, I am simply a mess. And then to watch the Canadian, Paula Findlay, in the triathlon today where she basically had trouble completing the event and was favoured to do well to begin with....well, watching her apologize to her mom during the last few metres of her run made me go through at least 10 kleenexes.
The P&G commercials (don't know if they are just Canadian or across different countries?) when they talk about supporting the moms of these athletes with all of these videos of watching kids train through the years and then they are at the Olympics....seriously.
Pregnant mamas just shouldn't watch these things!
