Let the games begin! With the XXX Olympiad now in full swing, it goes without saying that all eyes across the world are on London. With the Queen’s help and a few special guests, Danny Boyle orchestrated a grand opening ceremony to kick off the games. Now that the games are in full force, here are a few Olympic curlies to watch out for.
Megan Hodge (Volleyball) – Born in St. Thomas and hailing from Durham, NC Megan Hodge makes her Olympic debut in London as part of the women’s volleyball team. Hodge is expected to have a good showing at London and in years to come.
Reese Hoffa (Track & Field) – Weighing in at 315 pounds, Reese Hoffa is consistently ranked in the top 3 shot put men in the world. With a relatively low key media presence, I think Hoffa is set to make some noise in this year’s olympics.
Christina Loukas (Diving) – A self described kid at heart, this American diver took time off in 2010 after her performance in Beijing. Loukas is back for more in London 2012 she hopes to bring out big numbers in the women’s 3 m Springboard.
Maya Lawrence (Fencing) – Training in Paris, France and a native of New Jersey, Maya Lawrence also makes her debut in the 2012 London Olympics. This 32 year old fencer is looking to make a big impression at this year’s games.
