Stephanie Brown Trafton worshiped gymnast Mary Lou Retton as a young girl . . . but she did not follow in her idol's footsteps. And how lucky for Team USA that she did not. Yesterday she exceeded even her own expectations to become the first American woman since the 1932 Los Angeles Games to win a medal in the discus event. She also became the first American Track & Field athlete to win a gold medal in Beijing. Her throwing distance ? 64.74 meters (almost 213 feet) You are golden, girl.

Coinciding almost exactly with the Opening Ceremonies of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games is the opening of an exhibit exploring the intersection of fashion and sport. The exhibit will be organized around 4 central themes: Dare, Display, Play and Desire. If you cannot make it to China to watch the athletes in action, perhaps you can make it to London for this vibrant showcase of sartorial prowess. If you are lucky, you will be able to fit both on your agenda.

My all-time favorite dive was performed at twilight by a Hawaiian man who leapt from a cliff while holding a flaming torch in one hand. I am pretty sure we won't see any torches during any of the aquatics events, but I know they will all be thrilling nonetheless. And the venue, also known as the "Water Cube" is, in and of itself, a wonder to behold.

I have been dazzled by the brilliance of the designers on Project Runway, who have been able to seemingly transform nearly anything (even trash !) into glorious and original fashion. Last night's episode was a little different. About half of the designers were confused or completely stumped when presented with the challenge of designing an outfit that would (hypothetically) be worn by the U.S. women athletes to wear as they process in during the Opening Ceremonies. It was hysterical and tragic all at the same time. Thankfully, guest judge, Apolo Anton Ohno, is quite the gentleman and gave kind, thoughtful reviews of each designer's work. I won't tell you who won, but here are some samples of what I saw.

The blueprint for this stadium was completed in 2003, but the "Nest" was not fully complete until weeks before the 2008 Olympic Games are scheduled to begin tomorrow, August 8, 2008. Now that it is complete, the stadium will act as an anchor for the games, hosting the opening and closing ceremonies. It is as rich in symbolism as it is large in size. The red glow, which is visible beginning at dusk, represents luck and optimism. And the structure itself is intended to project a sense of movement and energy. Good luck to all the athletes, along with their dedicated coaches !

  • If you cannot make it to the Olympic games, you can certainly share in the Olympic spirit by purchasing a set of these gorgeous towels. Loving the logo !

So, what do you give someone who has already achieved so much ? A round of applause might be nice. And so would one of these stunning cuff bracelets for the female athletes. (Hang in there guys, I'm working on something for you too.)

Keeping track of two time zones, this watch is more than just a good-looking accessory. And its distinctive blue dial with yellow hands adds just the right amount of color to this classic timepiece. For the Team USA Olympians and every guy aspiring to achieve his personal best.

  • Relive the 2008 Summer Olympics with this jacket. This would cool if you went to the Olympics, knew somebody in them or just really enjoyed watching.

I travel a lot for work and for the last year I have wanted a Nintendo DS. I love puzzles and games and typically bring some crossword puzzles or something along with me, but they get crumpled and ripped and are kind of bulky. Plus, I only have what is in that one book. With a DS I can swap between arcade style games AND brain teasers.

Ah, sunscreen, so many choices…and so little time. For my face, I am very finicky about the texture, the smell, the staying power and also the convenience level of the packaging (must be travel/gym ready). This new Clarins sunscreen was a relief in a sea of sunscreen I have been testing for the last month or so. I love the little cylinder tube which is super portable. The formula itself is very lightweight and on the thin side, but so concentrated I didn’t need much to cover my face (so it is very long lasting). There is a light fragrance, which dissipated quickly. The lotion glided on my skin without a trace of stickiness, white cast, or oil. The finish was matte. I found that it was light enough to be layered over my favorite serum and under my liquid bronzer or tinted moisturizer that I tend to favor in the summer months. As a matter of fact, this is actually the perfect skin primer before makeup application. The lasting power was fantastic on days I was working, running around outside or actually sunning at the beach. I had no breakouts or irritation from the product and it didn’t run or melt on my skin. It also left my skin soft and moisturized without feeling oily, so on the weekends I would just wear this with a little mascara and lip color and I was good to go! This is a non-chemical sunscreen which many of you will also appreciate. It’s made from 100% minerals. Yes, this is another product that is indeed worth every penny and I will be stockpiling! Note: As an added bonus if you are like me and always around computer screens, Clarins has added protection against electromagnetic waves in this formula.

If you are lucky enough to be heading to Beijing to see some of the Olympic action, be sure to take along this new guide from Zagat. It will help you find your way to restaurants and hotels in your price range, as well as give you some ideas for things to do in between games and competitions. As the Olympics draw to a close, I am deeply humbled by the dedication of the many athletes who have participated in these events. Many went completely unnoticed, thrilled to simply be a part of the Games. A lucky few exceeded even their own expectations. And one particularly talented individual kept setting record after record with unprecedented focus and sublime athleticism. Thank you to Michael Phelps for lifting our spirits, raising the bar and demonstrating grace both in and out of the swimming pool.

Congratulations to Yevgenia Kanayeva of Team Russia for becoming the gold medal winner in the all-around individual rhythmic gymnastics competition. The United States did not qualify for the XXIX Olympiad, but I hope that we will have at least one or two American rhythmic gymnasts when the Summer Games are held in London in 2012. Perhaps these streamers, available in Heart, Rainbow or Celestial designs, will ignite a passion for the sport in a little girl you know and love.

Although their routines rocked my world, the Olympic gymnastics judges are seriously tough customers. So, congratulations to Nastia Liukin (silver) and Shawn Johnson (bronze) on their amazing grace, power and flexibility throughout their floor routines. For what it's worth, I would have awarded both of you gold medals. And, as far as the rest of the world is concerned, an Olympic medal is precious metal. And, I am keeping my fingers crossed that you get to rock some Stella when you compete in 2010.
