Beijing Olympic Events

7. The Olympics were your favorite. There was not an event you didn't enjoy watching. The Beijing Olympics were about 2 weeks before you passed away and during the opening ceremonies you were waving your hands to the music. Beijing olympics -2008.jpg

The most exciting athlete in all of track and field, Usain Bolt literally set the gold standard in his breathtaking 2008 performance in Beijing. The Jamaican joined American Carl Lewis as the only athlete to win three golds in sprinting races with victories in the 100, 200 and 4 x 100 relay, but became the first athlete to set world records in winning each event.

Phelps had a spectacular performance in 2008 at the Olympic Games in Beijing when he picked up a record eight gold medals, breaking the 1972 record of American swimmer Mark Spitz. Phelps also has won more individual Olympic gold medals than any other athlete — a number he is expected to add to at the 2012 games in London. God bless, & best wishes in all events to 2012 olympic athletes.
