Isn’t great to see so many young athletes have an opportunity to represent their countries in Beijing at the Summer Olympics?  Belonging to an athletic family who lives to watch the games, it is an exciting time.  As were the Ontario Summer Games this past weekend in Ottawa where my daughter coached an under 16 women’s field hockey team to a gold medal.  I’m thinking that this Google doodle has a field hockey stick in the net, what do you think?


To have a look at more of the wonderful Google doodles for the 2008 Olympics, look here.  What’s your favorite?  It’s hard to pick one, I love the basketball, ping pong, swimming, rowing, badminton — well, all of them really!  Thanks Google.
