20 years ago today --- Kerri Strug

[ Edited ]

Who remembers watching the US Olympic gymnastics team 20 years ago?  What an amazing night that was.

I live in metro Atlanta and I remember it well.  Eighteen days before my wedding, still almost another month until my third year of teaching began (all in 2nd grade at that point).

 

Now...will celebrate 20 years of marriage during the Rio games and will start my 23rd year of teaching (K-3rd over the years) on August 1st.  Anniversary is now nestled into the second week of school.

I'm not short...I'm fun size!

And I was there!  I was hanging from the rafters in the nosebleed seats, but I was there. 


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

I remember watching it via my S-VHS recording. I am not big on gymnastics, but amazed at what these athletes have worked so hard to obtain these types of skills. So many, and at such young ages.
