For the past year or so I’ve been wearing gold shoes (J.Crew offers a similar pair these days for like 3x as much as I paid) and this year I added bronze ones to the mix. All I have to say is metallics go with everything (making them the perfect shoe to pack while traveling)! While gold and bronze shoes can make a bit of a statement, winning a gold or a bronze in the Olympics is a major statement! And watching two of my former teammates – who had never rowed before college – powering to the finish line to win bronze [Wyatt Allen in the men’s 8] and gold [Lindsay Shoop in the women’s 8] yesterday was just awesome!!! Congrats wahoos!!!!

  • Watch the women’s gold medal race here
  • Big rowing men on little Chinese bikes here
  • Any sport done right makes it look easy. See Wyatt’s 2004 Athen’s gold medal + WR win here.
  • All Beijing rowing results here

P.S. Is anyone else starting to get annoyed that event results are all over the front pages of Olympic coverage, but none of it has aired yet!?!??!

  • Yes! I’m indeed getting sick of ladies volleyball and swimming. I wish they would air some equestrian events…
