Ongoing Olympic Coverage 3 Phelps is now 6 for 6 with World's Records in each. I'm sure I'll mention him again.

Tonight, I want to mention one of the things I love most about the Olympics...embodied by Nastia Luiken, the new American female Olympic champ.

I love the Olympics because there are people who realize lifelong dreams. There's nothing BETTER to do in the sport of gymnastics than win a gold medal. When you put a kid in gymnastics at age 5, the best you can hope for is that. Not so with basketball or baseball. Those sports have higher places to go. More money. All of that.

I love watching people achieve the most absolutely possible in their sport.
