Follow Up: Who is your favorite Olympian?
A: It''s just about athletes and how much training and dedication they have. I don''t think it has too much to do with the countries.
Peek-a-who? I don''t really think of too many names. Picabo Street is pretty rad. She''s cool.
Bike mechanic/Pacific Grove
A: [It''s about] the top champions that countries have picked to represent them and putting them up against the top champions of other countries. It says something about the training techniques that countries provide.
Not even Jesse Owens? I can''t really think of any names off the top of my head.
A: It''s a time for international unity, a time to put differences between nations aside and focus on the unity of humanity.
Wait a second, is she on our team? I would have to say Nadia Comaneci. I grew up doing gymnastics.
