In Olympic News:

Irish teen Evan McGuire powers to Olympic record – National News – Independent.ie.

The voice of Brendan in Secret of Kells won the first Olympic 100-meter race!  (“I can’t believe you!  The Olympics are coming and here you are acting, acting, ACTING!!!”)  He set the record at the age of 17.  Now he’s planning to compete in the 2016 Olympics!

This is the reason I love the Olympics.  All these odd things from around the world come out of the woodwork abruptly filled with awesome.   I feel people should know and remember this so we can cheer for Brendan in the next games.  (And look for the inevitable Abbot guy in his team while intoning, “Waaaaaaaaaalls!”)

    I feel like there should be an Abbot somewhere.

      But of course! Now what Olympic event would a long neck with arms who adores walls cleave to? Perhaps the stands count as people walls? Maybe hockey, so can slam others into walls?
