I've talked about how ALL the fast girls have pony tails----WELL # 1 Daughter told me about an article she had read concerning the Olympics and the Fashion Statement that many of the athletes were making. You KNOW---to be a REALLY GOOD gymnast---you need those clips to hold your hair back and a little glitter---well a LOT of glitter---on your hair---on your face---on your eyelids----JUST PUT ON THE GLITZ. Hopefully they avoid all security check points while wearing the hair armor----
The equestrians---have the bowler helmet---long fitted coat--jodhpurs---knee high boots. The dapper horse person would never be seen without them.
Camille pointed out that a couple of the beach volleyball girls were accused of looking like "Laundry Day at the Dorm". You have to see it to believe it!
ANYWAY---in my quest to be a FAST GIRL---I watched the girls' races last night---SO I could go for two tone hair-----with loose waves---Lots of makeup-- and a need to constantly pull those tresses back away from my face. SO maybe I don't need a ponytail after all just blonde/brunette hair--and the ability to high kick with my rear in the air as I place my feet on the starter's blocks!
