Diver Laura Wilkinson

Today’s video is of the last individual olympic gold medal winner for the US, Ms. Laura Wilkiinson. Laura had a great performance and a great competition, sometimes it just goes to show, any body can win on any given day. One of my favorite aspects of the olympics is to see all the hard work, dedication, time and effort you put into training and preparing for your sport pay off and you stand victorious on top of the podium. I believe if I won gold, I know for sure I would cry. Being on top of that podium, with your national anthem being played specifically for you with a gold medal around your neck is just a priceless, emotional surreal moment. I think that is why we all love watching the olympics, to see all these athletes’ hard work pay off, to see the success and victory. I am very proud of the USA diving team already medaling in 3 of the 4 synchronized events. Let’s continue the momentum and carry it over to the individual events.

Go USA!
