It's the summer event that everyone's been waiting for! The summer Olympics are almost here, and the opening ceremonies are tonight (July 27th). One of the popular Olympic sports to watch is the Men's and Women's artistic gymnastics, but not many people are very familiar with the sport.
My name is A.J.Beal. I'm a young gymnast from the area and have been involved in the sport of men's gymnastics for several years.
With the upcoming Olympics, Mr. Moynihan asked if I would give my commentary on the men's gymnastics competition. Having been involved with the sport so long, and knowing some of the Olympic team members personally, I was excited to contribute.
I'll be posting my thoughts and highlighting some of the things to look for during the men's gymnastics competition. Be sure to tune in tonight at 7:30 (on NBC) for the opening ceremonies, and also on the 28th for the men's gymnastics team qualifications.
For the Olympic broadcast schedule go to http://www.nbcolympics.com/get-local/tvlistings.html for details.
By the way, Team USA consists of Danell Leyva, Jonathan Horton, John Orozco, Jake Dalton, and Sam Mikulak. I'll be providing more insight on these athletes in the coming days.
Talk to you all soon!
A.J. Beal, local athlete.
