"This is a tough question because I enjoy so many of the events. I am really looking forward to the triathlon, since the event is so close to my heart. The British have an impressive, strong team and I am looking forward to seeing Alistair Brownlee and his brother, Jonny Brownlee. I am also excited to see American, Hunter Kemper perform at his 4th Olympic Games. On the women's side, I am also expecting amazing performances from Brittish athlete Helen Jenkins, but also strong performances from the very promising American team of Laura Bennett, Sarah Groff and Gwen Jorgensen. In addition, I am looking forward to track and field and gymnastics. A few track super stars; Tyson Gay, Sanya Richards-Ross, Justin Gatlin, Shalane Flanagan, and the marathoners like Meb Keflezighi, Ryan Hall and Kara Goucher will be exciting to watch!"
