→ I want Allison Schmitt to Win all the Races

And Pat Forde explains why:

Allison Schmitt is a walking spit take. Ask her about family dinners as the middle child of five growing up in Canton, Mich., and she’ll tell you about milk coming out her nose because she’s guffawing uncontrollably at her siblings. Ask her about anything, actually, and giggles are sure to follow.

“When I hear someone laugh, I automatically start laughing,” Schmitt said. “I literally laugh at everything.”

Watching her pull away during the 4×200 relay yesterday was awesome. Currently, in the “my favorite Olympian of the 2012 games” contest, she has to be near the top.
