My local City was honoring Kim Rhode last night for her historic medal and achievement in the Olympics. What an exciting time, and a great woman she is. Meeting an Olympian is one thing - a gold medalist another, but meeting the only American to have medaled in five separate Olympics? It was nothing short of awesome.

Congrats to Kim on her achievements, and I know I will be rooting for her in the years to come.

Some pics (forgive the big grins, it was a really great experience):

Thanks. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, I felt.

As I said above, once-in-a-lifetime. Having those around my neck was crazy. Heavier than you'd think - and just as awesome as you'd think. Very cool.

Yeah, that was crazy. I'm not sure I could let them go if they were mine! She's really great about that - not just when I met her, but everything else I've seen about her.

Seriously jealous guninit. Congrats!

Thanks again.

One last picture...she signed my book for me. Asked her just to cross out the author's name, and she had a great laugh, saying she could never do that. I beg to differ. I think she could show many folks a thing or three.
