The glory of the Olympics was captured with their Super Bowl Ad to This is Me from The Greatest Showman soundtrack.

I love the Olympics!

The high-level excellence combined with worldwide unity is so inspiring. Plus, we get to witness magic moments like the first time Usain Bolt won gold in 2008! Watching that on live TV was exhilarating, we (the audience) knew we were witnessing something special.

The Winter 2018 Olympics were no different. When snowboarding legend Shaun White took his redemption gold medal run and when Chloe Kim won gold on her first run and had an even better final victory run, it was magic. What was almost even better was witnessing their celebrations. Shaun was so overwhelmed, it made me cry. When Chloe won gold, Liu Jiayu of China won silver, American Arielle Gold won bronze, they were so happy, it was adorable how all three connected and celebrated together.

While recapping this Olympics with my main squeeze, I shared with him my favorite Olympics song (which he had never heard before!) One Moment in Time from the 1988 Olympics sung by the incomparable Whitney Houston that makes my heart ache in a good way. Watch Whitney Houston sing it live in this 5:25-minute video or with Olympic Highlights. Check out the lyrics below to get the full impact of this powerful song.

What’s your favorite Olympic moment or song?

One Moment in Time by Whitney Houston

Each day I live
I want to be
A day to give
The best of me
I’m only one
But not alone
My finest day
Is yet unknown

I broke my heart
Fought every gain
To taste the sweet
I face the pain
I rise and fall
Yet through it all
This much remains

I want one moment in time
When I’m more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I’m racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel
I will feel eternity

I’ve lived to be
The very best
I want it all
No time for less
I’ve laid the plans
Now lay the chance
Here in my hands

Give me one moment in time
When I’m more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I’m racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel
I will feel eternity

You’re a winner for a lifetime
If you seize that one moment in time
Make it shine

Give me one moment in time
When I’m more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I’m racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will be
I will be
I will be free
I will be
I will be free
