Atlanta Flashback: Kerri Strug vaults into America's heart

Fourth-Place Medal

Cheesy headline? You bet.

But you try watching this video clip without getting warm and fuzzy all over.

After reading Maggie's post earlier today about our favoirite Olympic memories, I had to go and watch the Kerri Strug vault from the Atlanta Olympics a few more times.

The funny thing is, I had forgotten who was announcing at that time for NBC ... none other than John Tesh.

After Strug landed the vault I was expecting him to say something like "Strug might have just clinched it for the Americans!"

But he waited a couple of seconds and exclaimed "Kerri Strug is hurt!"

Now granted, the judges scores still hadn't come out, and Strug was hurt, but couldn't he have said something a little more exciting during the biggest moment in U.S. gymnastics history.

I guess it doesn't matter ... 12 years later I still get goosebumps when I watch this clip.
