    What is your favorite Olympic moment?

    With the Olympics just a few weeks away I was wondering what might be your favorite moment.

    I think one of my favorites is now part of a commercial that has been airing lately.

    And I don't enjoy hockey

    1984 Olympics

    Nawal El Moutawakel winning the gold medal in the Women's 400m hurdles.
    Danny Harris winning the silver medal in the Men's 400m hurdles.

    EDIT: Looking at theshadow's post I can't believe I left out Cael Sanderson!

    Re: What is your favorite Olympic moment?

    I have an unfair advantage here. In 1984, I worked for the concessions and novelty company handling the sales at the Los Angeles Coliseum and Sports Arena. So, I was around the 16 days of the track and field competition at the Coliseum, and the boxing competition at the Sports Arena. Plus, the Coliseum had the opening and closing ceremonies.

    Two main events I remember, although I cannot remeber the names. But the female long-distance runner for the U.S. that was tripped by the runner from South Africa I believe......can't remember the name. And, just the opening ceremonies. It was an incredible experience.

    When John Candy took a handful of Jamaican track stars and turned them into Olympic Bobsledders.

    Like drlove said, too many moments to effectively choose one.

    Re: What is your favorite Olympic moment?

    I love the opening ceremonies! Especially the last few years that they have been in HD.

    I am ticked off this year because I have to travel out of the US during the olympics. Ugh, of all the times!
