Like millions of others, I eagerly watched the Olympics opening ceremony and enjoyed the spectacle. I love the Olympics, and revel in the celebration of elite sports men and women — the best in the world in their field — pushing boundaries and ‘going for gold’.

Doping scandals and steroids aside, the Olympic spirit encapsulates the dedication and commitment to be the best they can be. Terms like ‘world record’ and ‘personal best’ abound, rightly, as those involved pursue their destiny.

The other thing that’s striking to me is just how attractive some of these athletes are. Good golly, what a gene pool! Even without doping, the testosterone and estrogen levels must be through the roof.

I’m lookling forward to the Games.
