Olympics

Just saw Dutch television talking about the Sydney 2000 Olympics. Leontien van Moorsel talking about her 3 gold medals. I was there to witness that twice. I saw her on the stage from a few meters.

The defining moment of that Olympics was the gold medal by Cathy Freeman. I remember standing outside the stadium during that race. I sneeked in to witness the medal ceremony with about 100.000 others. Chills.

Looking back at it, it was unique to be there at that moment. Remembering it makes me see that even more.
