I'm not too old after all...

Well it turns out I still have a chance at the Olympics, I'm not too old after all!

Since the weather isn't that amazing this week, and I'm still on vacation, well were are spending more time inside, and the TV is on with the Olympics. Today I watched skeet shooting (I didn't even know that was a part of the Olympics), and apparently we had a Dane in the finals! And he won a silver medal, which makes it the first Danish medal in the 2012 Olympics.

But when I saw his contestants, well that was then I thought I might still have a chance at the Olympics. Well the Gold went to Vincent Hancock from the USA, and he is only 23, the Danish guy Anders Colding is 28. But they had a shootout for the bronze medal which was between Valeriy Shomin from Russia and Nasser Al-Attiya from Qatar. Both these men are 41 years old. I honestly thought Valeriy Shomin was older, the looked older on the field than in the photo I found of him.

Besides the speakers were talking about how a skeet shooter could compete on a high level well into their 40s and even in their 50s. So there you have it, I might still have a chance at the Olympics, now I just have to learn to skeet shoot, and honestly how hard can that be? You aim and you fire... piece of cake... so look out for me in 2016 in Brazil:)


  1. That's right Connie... realize your Olympics dreams and potential! ;) I'll be buying tickets to see you compete! xoxox
