The Olympics kept me preoccupied—not so much with the football matches (which were a glorified U23 tournament—unfortunately, Spain crashed out without a goal, but thank god Mexico pulled an upset over Brazil), but well, for swimming and gymnastics, which I have been tracking since I was eight (hello, Barcelona Olympics!).
As for swimming, the world can have the Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte variants. I prefer Nathan Adrian—half-American, half-Chinese, graduated with honors from UC Berkeley, and has a smile that can light up the whole world.
If “adorable” had an illustration next to it in the dictionary, it would definitely be a photo of Nathan Adrian.
