Missing the #summerolympics

"When you feel broken. When you have nothing left to give. Remain faithful. Keep fighting. Joy comes in the morning." - Allyson Felix #teamusa #olympics #usa🇺🇸 #rio2016 #summerolympics

#Stockholm won the bid for its first Olympic hosting gig in 1912 by default; it was the only city to have submitted a bid to the IOC for that year. Even so, Pierre de Coubertin pushed Sweden to ensure that the 1912 #SummerOlympics will truly take place. He didn't want a repeat of the 1908 Summer Olympics, where #Rome had to pull out because of the Mt. Vesuvius eruption and, thus, forcing IOC to move the venue to London. Participating athletes numbered 2,406, representing 28 countries. The 1912 Stockholm Olympics was the first to hold the decathlon and pentathlon events, as well as the women's diving and women's swimming events. The debut of the Japanese Olympic team marked the first time an Asian country was represented in the Games.

Stockholm was not the official host city of the 1956 Summer Olympics. That honor belonged to Melbourne in Australia. The Swedish capital, however, served as the venue for that year's equestrian events. #reise #Ferie #Sverige #Olympics #reiseblogger #traveblogger

Pierre de Coubertin had wanted his hometown #Paris to host the #SummerOlympics . He got his wish in 1900, when the Games were held as part of the 1900 World's Fair. In this iteration of the Games, 997 athletes from 24 countries participated. The 1900 Olympics is a landmark event in that it was the first one that allowed female athletes to compete. Two women won a medal that year: Helene de Pourtales in 1-2 ton sailing team event, and Charlotte Cooper in the women's singles tennis competition.

The Summer Olympics returned to Paris in 1924. This event was a year of firsts for the Olympics. For one, it was the first time that an Olympic Village was built to accommodate participating athletes. The official Olympic motto, "Citius, Altius, Fortius" ("Faster, Higher, Stronger") was also adopted for the first time that year. The 100-meter and 400-meter running competitions were immortalized in the film Chariots of Fire. It was also the year when Johnny Weissmuller won three gold medals in swimming. Weissmuller later became an actor known for his iconic role as Tarzan. #reise #ferie #Olympics #travelblogger #reiseblogger

Doubt the #WBC means something? Tell that to every team who played their hearts out for their perspective countries -- including tonight's #ChampionshipGame , to every game that felt like it was a #bigtime & #intensegame in the #MLBPlayoffs , to the large #international crowds who packed entry stadium and filled it so much passionate loud-cheering & energy (such as the one in #DodgerStadium tonight). #Baseball was wrongfully taken away from the #SummerOlympics about a decade ago, so the #WorldBaseballClassic became their #WorldCup . Give it some time, it'll grow; this years edition was pretty exciting overall. If you didn't watch this year's version, you missed alot of great games, #InstantClassic's and tense thrillers
.

Congrats to #TeamUSA on finally getting a #Championship/ #GoldMedal in a game that they claim is their #NationalPastime . Everyone (like #AdamJones , #MarcusStroman , #AndrewMcCutchen ) were passionate about winning the game for their country -- & seeing that always great to see
.
.
The crowd chants of "USA!" was loud and rampant throughout the night, you'd wish that the #MLB can adopt this kind of crowd atmosphere (that the international crowd does) as oppose to this 'classy, quiet nature ' unless its the playoffs. If you want the game to grow to the younger crowd, start off with this (in addition to just letting players being themselves. Ala. If they wanna #batflip , let em)

Tonight at 8PM on the #UndeniableShow , meet Jackie Joyner-Kersee - the most decorated female athlete in Olympic track and field history! 🏅

I have such mad respect for Olympians.😎 They train their whole lives for their sport, with laser focus on their nutrition and physical health!  This is Josh Davis,  Olympic gold medalist, and former world record-holder. Davis represented the United States at two consecutive Summer Olympics. After checking out supplements for 20 years, he decided to go with Plexus!!🙌❤
Josh Davis shares~
"Since returning from the 1996 Olympics, I've had people approach me to endorse their supplements. After 20 years of research, I finally found products worth sharing. My favorite product is a pink drink that helps balance out my insulin and cortisol levels. This has helped enormously with my adrenal fatigue. For others, it helps with their weight loss goals.

I also love their probiotic. If you don't understand the importance of gut heath, read the book "Brain Maker", and you'll be on this probiotic you're entire life. Since I've lost someone close to me to cancer, I'm a huge fan of their Cleanse which helps with full body oxygenation and cleanses arterial and gastrointestinal tracts.

What sold me was their vitamin. It has a never-before-seen formulation of a patented aloe blend and New Zealand Blackcurrant of which results in vastly improved absorption and delivers several B vitamins, vitamins D, C and E, the antioxidant protection. I struggle absorbing B and D so this is an awesome vitamin which is very important total health!" Plexus is not a diet. It's SO MUCH more! Its great hitting those weight goals, but lets focus on Feeling amazing first.. 💗🙌🖒 #rio #summerolympics #healthfirst #longevity

“The 2012 London Olympic Games fostered a generation of hope. I witnessed women participating for the very first time, representing every nation.” 🌎

#London holds the distinction of being the only city to have hosted the #SummerOlympics thrice: 1908, 1948, and 2012.

#Rome was actually the city chosen by the International Olympic Committee in 1908. However, the eruption of #Mt .Vesuvius in 1906 meant holding the Games in #Italy would be impossible. Thus, the Games were moved to London, IOC's second choice. The 1908 London Summer Olympics is considered to be the longest in the history of the Games. It lasted a total of six months and four days. Some 2,000 athletes representing 22 countries participated. In the 1908 Games, Sweden's Oscar Swahn set the record for being the oldest Olympian to win the gold medal. Another record-holder was John Taylor, the first African-American to compete in the games. #reise #ferie #Olympics #reiseblogger #travelblogger
