OLYMPICS: Do you always cheer for your own country?
Sometimes I feel guilty for doing this, but in many cases I actually cheer against my own country (the US) during the Olympics. I don't actively choose to do this; I just naturally tend to cheer for an underdog and I love seeing athletes from other countries who are perhaps less privileged or well-known make a statement. Sometimes I just dislike certain US athletes, just as I dislike certain athletes from other countries.
So, when watching the Olympics, do you always cheer for your own country?
And when I say your "own" country, I know that is a loose term that can mean many different things for different people: country of citizenship, country of birth, ethnicity, etc. I'll leave it up to you to decide what you consider to be your "own" country and how you want to vote.
What other factors, if any, contribute to who you cheer for at the Olympics?
I cheer for the US all of the time.(except when Tom Daley is involved )
He's only involved in diving though so yes I do cheer for my home country 99% of the time.
I actually get really excited/intense when watching the Olympics. Especially during swimming. I got so mad when France beat the US by so little in the four way relay.
For team/multi-athlete events, I almost always cheer for Team USA, unless I really fall in love with another team. But for individual events I really like to pick and choose which athletes I cheer for and find out what they're like as a person. For example, I'm not really here for Phelps or Lochte because I find both of them pretty cocky I also love seeing seeing world class athletes in lesser known and less popular sports just dominate that sport (like table tennis or archery). There was this one woman from China (Wang Mingjuan) who won the gold in women's weightlifting and she just had so much composure and an effortless swag about and just destroyed the competition. Great athletes and great people come in many forms.
Rolling Stone review Diamonds World Tour
Throughout the night, she used her hand like a cat its tongue, rubbing her thighs like she's rolling out dough, patting her crotch as if slapping cheese on a burger.
Yes, I'll always vote for America, unless it's Lochte because he's stupid. I mean partying till 2 am when you have two events the next day?
Also, Jiang Yuyuan didn't make the China gymnastics team and Nastia Liukin didn't make the US team ( If she did I would have wanted the others to lose at the all around. So I vote for everyone in the US But I felt so bad for Jordyn Weiber, she deserved it more than Aly!
I'm learning lessons to make mistakes
. . .If I get burned, no embers break.
You told me I'm my destiny
. . . While your power gets the best of me..
Repeatedly, I get neglected.
. . .You claim that I am unperfected..
I usually cheer for my own country, especially in sports that I don't follow outside of the Olympics. But sometimes there are exceptions.
Quante ne vorrei fare ma poi rimango fermo
Guardo la vita in foto e giŗ Ť arrivato un altro inverno
Non cambio mai su questo mai, distruggo tutto sempre
Se vi ho deluso chieder scusa non servirŗ a niente
