        These are great. Knitted Mark Spitz looks exhausted.

            "Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, 'Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'"  - Peter Maher

                just a simple cat

                  Age group awards too?

                   

                  I  guess as you get more bodacious, you begin to lose more brain cells, because there is a limit to how much magnificence your body can house

                        Are they based on miles of running or miles of swimming?

                        It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

                          I see a focus on the summer games here. I guess I should pick up some sticks and do Apolo. Hmmm...

                          I'm touching your pants.

                            None of those knitted Olympians were anatomically correct.  Just wanted to point that out, before you get too far along with your project.

                              Yes. A dearth of eyebrows.

                                Nope. Won't even be in the same time zone.
