Growing up, we always tried to watch the Olympics every two years. My favorite is always the ice skating events. The spins, the music, the costume, the balance… every bit of it is magical! I can’t last a minute on the ice myself, so to see such elegance on the screen is very captivating.
In Winter 2002, the Olympics came to my home state, Utah. I had the opportunity to visit the grounds and see some of the smaller events. Unfortunately, I was young and can’t remember too much about it, but I do remember seeing the runner carrying the torch, in addition to enjoying some beautiful ice sculptures. Most likely the Olympics won’t be coming back to Utah anytime soon, but I want our boys to enjoy them as much as I always have.
