Now that I'm a mom, my interest in the games goes beyond just watching the competitions and the incredible athletes. My mind now wonders about the the work behind it all, and the family.
I wonder what these athletes were like as children; what makes them the best at what they do? What sparked their love of their sport and how did they get there? I'm a big believer in encouraging your kids to be the best they can be, and these athletes certainly are examples of that. I want my kids to find what they love, hope to pick up on their skills and gently guide them to a love of being active - without being too pushy about it.
Here are 7 great Olympic sports your child could be great at with a little encouragement!
