Well, when a nation, like America, is the powerhouse of the Olympiad, I think the upcoming American Olympians have enough things to worry about as it is. However, it was a great idea for the USOC to have these national Games, like the way Canada does with its Canada Games.
Guardian: yes, I agree. The USOC has agreat deal to deal with. However they should try to support more of these type of events. With corporate money out there, even having a small version of these Games every year could keep their Olympic athletes in the public eye more often than every foru years.

My husband and I went to the 1991 US Olympic Festival in Los Angeles. It was great!!! My husband worked for Panasonic and we got tickets to lots of events and the Opening Ceremonies at Dodger Stadium. I even got to participate in the Torch Relay in Laguna Beach. I was sad that they didn't continue the Olympic Festival.
Welcome pinfvr! Nice to have another woman join up.
