The Olympics give us some of the most amazing sporting events to watch in the world. Whether it is Summer or Winter, every 2 years now we get to see one or the other that puts the world in competition. It can be absolutely amazing to watch and some of the performances at the Olympic Games have been legendary.
Some of them are so amazing, in fact, that there are movies made about them. Heck, a ton of them also have documentaries made about them too. It does not matter which country is connected to an amazing performance either. The world will find something to love about it, even if their nation did not have a connection.
Sometimes the most shocking performances can be even greater while others call their shot from the beginning and we wait to see if they can come through. Both men and women are part of this ancient set of games, and several new sports are added consistently with likely more coming.
These men and women work their butts off to make it here and often spend their entire lives working toward it. Of course, it is amazing to see when they can walk away with a medal. Yet sometimes they may not medal and still be an amazing story, such as the Jamaican Bobsled team for example.
This list will involve only those that made the medal listing, however. Sit back and relax as we take you on a journey to the greatest performances at the Olympic Games.
