Re: Most Emotional Olympic Moments
Can we include the Winter Olympics? If so, it was seeing Michelle Kwan lose out to Tara Lipinski. It was so, so close, and the night was already so emotional with Lu Chen skating so beautifully after all her struggles. Anyway, I was a huge Michelle fan, and it was so tough to see, even though yes, I had to admit that Tara actually was better that night. And of course, four years later, it was deja vu...
For the Summer Olympics, seeing Greg Louganis bang his head was pretty shocking, and Kerri Strug finishing her vault one-legged was quite amazing, too. Seeing the Magnificent Seven up on the podium with Bela Karolyi holding Kerri in his arms was an unforgettable moment.
