I'm a die hard Democrat, but we do have the BEST athletes! A good point for this is because we have better workout equipment, better athletic gear, etc. The equipment is key, though. They go through totally grueling training ( not that they don't in any other countries ) I keep thinking of "Silence Of The Lambs" the first scene when Starling is running through the obstacle course. There's a tree that says - AGONY PAIN SWEAT LOVE IT. Yep, BRING HOME THE GOLD!!!! I love the Winter Olympics too, where they do that event in the little car going down the track- what's it called? They jump in and off they go, laying down - what a sport.
