Yah, auntieM, with the talk on security, I have never been more apprehensive.

Gymnastics! One of my favorites since childhood! It was watching Nadia Elena Comăneci scoring perfect 10s that got me hooked on Gymnastics and Olympics!
Looking forward to watch Phelps, and our own table-tennis team too!
