Top 10 Olympians in the Olympic Games (Both Summer/Winter)

The Olympic Games. Both summer and winter games. As there have been some famous Olympian’s that made sports history. In this list, there are three olympians from the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany, three more from the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Alberta, two more from the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris, France, one more from the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Colombia, and one more from the 1964 Winter Olympics in Innsbruck, Austria.

10. Steve Collins. A Canadian ski jumper as he participated mostly in the 1988 Winter Olympics, in Calgary, Alberta. He was doing his best, participating. Unfortunately, he didn’t won any medals. But he loved signing autographs from the audience. By looking at him, you might think if he looks like Inigo Montoya from “The Princess Bride” movie, but he did really great as a Canadian ski jumper. He was with Karen Percy in the games I believe. For the support of Canada. And was nearly dead last like Eddie the Eagle in 1988. But the good thing is that he participated. Very well indeed.

9. Carl Ludwig Long. A German long jumper in the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany. He was a rival against Jesse Owens, but became a kind friend right before the games were over. He won the silver medal for long jumping, and participated very well. He did his best for Germany before the Second World War was declared. He became a soldier after the games, right before he faced ‘Operation Husky’. The Allied invasion of Sicily, Italy. He may have been a soldier like how Col. Claus Von Stauffenberg was, but was a kind friend to Jesse Owens right before the Olympics were over.

8. Karen Percy. A Canadian alpine skier who won two bronze medals. She got those by participating in the 1988 Winter Olympics, in Calgary, Alberta. Some of the fans admired her, and she was really fast. So darn fast, she beats Will Ferrell as Ricky Bobby. And at the closing ceremony, she carried the flag for Canada as a flag bearer. With passion, speed and her skill, she deserved those two bronze medals. And I know one thing for her. She definitely beats Will Ferrell or any racer who dares to face her.

7. Louie Zamperini. He participated in the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany. He was a fast runner like Jesse Owens, but Jesse Owens had beaten him in track running for sure. He didn’t won any medals at that time. However, years after that, he got into the Second World War against the Japanese as a fighter bombardier until his plane crash landed in the sea. He survived for 47 days, until he was a POW at a camp where he faced the wrath of the Japanese. And after he and his friends faced the wrath of the Japanese, they were saved when the war ended in 1945. From his homecoming to how he missed the land of his hometown, he became a Christian Evangelist with a strong belief in forgiveness. In 1998, he ran and lit the torch of the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. He was for sure a fast runner, but also a survivor of redemption.

6. Eric Liddell. An English-Scottish runner as he participated in the 1924 Summer Olympics, in Paris, France. They called him the ‘Flying Scotsman’, right after that record breaking, two tendered green steam engine, cause for how fast he was. He had no coach to train him. It was only himself, after some training by doing it, the old fashioned way. He was a really great runner, and won only two medals in the games. One bronze, and one gold. And during the games, his rival was Harold Abrahams. Right after the games were over, both Eric and Harold gave up their rivalry. And deserved the medals that they were given.

5. Harold Abrahams. An English-Jewish track and field athlete, in which he participated in the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris, France. He was coached by Sam Mussabini, and wanted to win very well. Especially when he needed to be faster and stronger. Therefore, he did. He had won only two medals in the olympic summer games. One gold and one silver. His rival was Eric Liddell before he became a friend to him, right after the games were over. He deserved those medals for sure, and how he became a kind friend to his coach, and former rival, Eric Liddell also after that.

4. Peter Kirby. A Canadian bobsledder with a four man crew, as he and his crew, participated in the 1964 Winter Olympics, in Innsbruck, Austria. He and his crew won only one gold medal. In bobsledding as a 4 man crew. Although they wore old fashioned football helmets, but they did really great that made Canada very pleased on. You might think if they’re playing for Notre Dame football, by looking at their clothing and gear. But he and his team were real olympians as they were to go for the gold. Until finally, they did won the gold medal.

3. Jesse Owens. The star of the 1936 Summer Olympics, in Berlin, Germany, and every man in Europe loved him. An African-American fast track runner. He won three gold medals and every member and olympian were pleased of him. At home, he was facing racism cause for how he was as an African-American. But became a real olympian by having himself in Berlin, Germany. He also in fact, had a massive homecoming as every African-American people cheered for him. He also had some fans, that wanted autographs. Kids too. And they really loved him as an olympian, for how he made history. While he was in the games in Berlin, he almost met Adolf Hitler at some point. But Hitler have left early in the afternoons, before he had to begin his planning for invasions after the games. Or so have I read. And it was a good thing that Owens didn’t met Hitler. Otherwise, there would’ve been chaos.

2. Eddie the Eagle. The star of the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Alberta. A British ski jumper as didn’t won any medals, but the fans really love him. Michael Edwards who wanted to be an Olympian, but he finally did it. He trained for months, by doing it the old fashioned way and how he really soared like an eagle. Especially when he did the 90 meters at the very end. He was interviewed many times by reporters, and he had shared his story in common. He was your ordinary man, as he loved the Olympics before his debut in Calgary. Although he was in dead last, but I was glad that at the closing ceremony, he was mentioned and how some of the olympians have soared like an eagle like how he participated.

1. Daisuke Takahashi. He won the bronze medal in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia. A Japanese skater who skated way better than Will Ferrell in “Blades of Glory” and how he participated very well. And that’s not all folks. Cause after he had a successful homecoming to Japan, he did a skating tribute to Studio Ghibli’s very final masterpiece, “When Marnie Was There”. Directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, based in the novel by Joan G. Robinson, and Oscar nominated for Best Animated Feature Film. Unfortunately, if it weren’t for the academy, Studio Ghibli would’ve deserved that Oscar award. Although he did deserved that bronze medal, and how he participated very well in Vancouver, British Colombia, but I am glad that he worked for the support of Studio Ghibli, since Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata’s retirement. Their final masterpieces were “The Wind Rises”, and “The Tale of Princess Kaguya”. Both Oscar nominated for Best Animated Feature Film. But if it weren’t for academy, those two Studio Ghibli masterpieces would’ve deserved those Oscar awards. The same goes for “When Marnie Was There”.

Do you agree with my list? Which are your top Olympians?


Zoolander (2001)

I prefer this movie, than that shitty sequel that didn’t do very well in theatres that I hear.

My brothers were into role modelling a while ago, and they looked very good looking. One of my brothers did a UK commercial that made him win $1,000 in cash. And to tell you the truth, they were what I like to call, them ‘Zoolander Brothers’, thanks to this movie.

Ben Stiller portrayed as Derek Zoolander. A famous fashion role model, and he was hilarious! Along with Ben Stiller, are his dad Jerry Stiller, Owen Wilson, his brother Andrew Wilson, Jon Voight, Vince Vaughn, Christine Taylor, David Bowie as himself, and Will Ferrell, as the most hideous, disgraceful, disgusting, and despicable villain that you have ever laid your eyes on. He was also worse with that white poodle pooch that he kept.

Brainwashed by that villain, he had to find a way to stop an assassination that he was ordered to follow, and solve a mystery in role modelling, and fashion.

And before you know, he did it. Especially when he used his psychic powers to stop a swinging blade.

I was pleased on how Ben Stiller was hilarious as Derek Zoolander. So for the sake of Paramount Pictures, I give this movie filmed in 2001, 8/10 stars. Success!

30 years since Eddie the Eagle

In the 2018 Winter Olympics, in Pyeonchang, South Korea, they were glad to have ski jumpers. And it’s not just that. While some of them can soar like an eagle…

…they’ve finally mentioned and interviewed, the real Eddie the Eagle!!

He was glad to be interviewed. Cause it has been 30 years since the 1988 Winter Olympics, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. And how he participated. He was in last place, but the fans really love him. He was a total icon at that time.

And when they’ve showed his true story, it was everything than for what happened in that movie.

He didn’t had an instructor like Hugh Jackman’s character, he was training like old fashioned way, and didn’t went to Germany for that practice hill that he got into.

Cause no matter for what he did, he really became a true Olympian.

Although the movie made him cry with a smile on his face, but I just have to find some video footage to post on YouTube. And I just love for how Eddie the Eagle did in Calgary. So, here’s to 30 years for what Eddie the Eagle did in Calgary, Alberta in 1988. I’m very proud of him.

Right after a promo and it’s video on TV, I wanted both to be posted on my YouTube account. With the right audio, the right colour and its lighting. Cause when Stanley Kubrick did “The Shining” in 1980, he did on the right way, while filmmaking. And I wanted to be like him at that very moment.

Everything was on the PVR at that time, when I was gonna do it. Unfortunately, someone deleted the recording by accident and I went berserk on that day.

I was pretty much like how Michael Madsen was in “Reservoir Dogs”. I wanted to slap him in the face very or hit his hard hearing ears.

And that person, who acts like a child trapped in a man’s body, and is a clumsy old crackpot….(Or C.O.C. for short)….

…is him!!

See what I mean?

Ocean Waves (a 1993 Studio Ghibli movie)

They had this premiered on TV, only in Japan in 1993, thanks to Studio Ghibli and the director, Tomomi Mochizuki.

Based on the 1990 novel by Saeko Himoru, they didn’t brought this to North America until December, 2016 by GKIDS. GKIDS had tried to find a US cast for this movie, but they didn’t before they released this, in the spring of 2017. So this became the very first Studio Ghibli that I ever watched in Japanese. English subbed. I really didn’t mind watching this in Japanese. I was more focused on how a relationship can really mean.

Rikako Muto, a new transfer girl student became a kind friend to two teenage boys. Taku Morisaki and Yutaka Matsuno. Taku began to be a friend with Rikako, and had a small trip from Kyoto to Tokyo, in Japan. Although, there were problems to be solved on, but it took time for Taku to know on how he felt on Rikako. Cause in the end, at that train station, Taku finally met her once more, and decided to stay together no matter what happens in life.

So I’m gonna give this 10/10 stars. Very successful. And when you get ready for Japan, here’s a movie to get ready on.
