My favourite is Matthias Steiner. I thought he had bit of a lucky day when he took gold (snatch), silver (total) and bronze (clean & jerk) in the european championships this year, and then he goes up and wins the olympic gold :D ! Ultra solid! But what I really like about him is his intense display of happines, even more intense than what he showed at the europeans:

Mine is : Dara Torres. She's a 41 year old mom who is a U.S. Olympic swimmer.

She already won a silver medal at women's 400-meter medley relay on Sunday at the Beijing Olympics..

I watched the 1km outdoor womens swimming final yesterday.

A lady, with 1 leg qualified for this & finished 16th, against all the other women.

That is truly inspirational for diasabled & able bodied people everywhere.

I've never seen more dominance in any event...not Mr. Phelps in swimming or anyone in another other event....sure some won like 10 medals, but as far as in the event, making it look so easy, complete heads above the competition....this guy gets my vote!

He can jog his way to one of the most precious world records in athletic history...world's fastest human.

i think no one is able to run this fast without any kinds of doping. as far as we are talking about human beings of course.

I disagree here, but mostly, I hope it is not true.

Anyway, I don't like the Cuban guy who kicked a referee in the face. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/24/sports/olympics/24kick.html?em There're videos in youtube as well, of course.

Shalane Flanagan, 3rd in the 10K. She battled a stomach virus 3 days before the race too. Her mother is the former world record holder in the marathon and her reaction brought me to tears!

I'm thinking about moving to Utah and become a mormon so that I can be a polygamist. That way I can marry Shawn Johnson, Nastia Liukin, and the women's beach volleyball team.
