It's never too soon to start talking Olympics, seeing that the trials are in less than three weeks and the opening ceremonies are on July 27. So for information on the Games, schedule, competitors, etc. bookmark About.com's Olympic Central.
Speaking of the trials, do understand how a diver will qualify? It's a bit different than four years ago, but more in line with the past. No selection camps or committees, it's a one shot deal at the trials so these girls and guys had better be on their game starting the 17th of June!
Here is some Olympic trivia to get you in the mood:
- What Olympic champion won her first national title at the age of 14?
- What Olympic champion was the first Asian American woman to win an Olympic gold medal?
- What Olympic champion and her daughter both won successive golds in the Pan Am Games?
