Here’s to some Olympic gold girl power – Dana Vollmer became the first U.S. female swimmer to strike gold in London, cruising through the field to win the 100 butterfly event, finishing in 55.98 seconds and setting a new world record for the event.
It’s Dana’s first individual Olympic gold for the 24 year old from Syracuse, NY. In 2004 she won a relay gold. Congrats Dana – go Girl Power.
Back To School Read-A-Thon! It's almost that time again: time to go back to school! I don't know about you guys but I am dreading what this is going to do to my reading time. The summer has been great for me to get caught up …
