Olympic Week begins! And Aly turned heads last night, finishing second overall in qualifying.
And we're mentioned on Deadspin:
Jewish sports fans have a long history of living vicariously through prominent Jewish athletes, and prior to the era in which a little Googling could turn up a site which claims authority on the subject, it was a popular pastime to debate the all-around Jewishness of athletes whose religious affilitations were ambiguous (David Cone, anybody?).

Lezak did not swim in the finals, only taking part in the semifinals. Nevertheless, he gets his second career silver, to go with four golds and two bronzes. Seven of the eight came in relays.

Hooray, the Olympics are here! Next week will be Olympics Week, where every day we will profile a 2012 Jewish (or Not Jewish?) Olympian. But here is a Jewish great to kick us off.
Thanks to Gabriella from Hungary for the suggestion.

As well as obviously pretty much the entire Israeli team. Three of the five have already been selected... Who knows, we might even do more!

David from Long Island REALLY wanted us to profile Susan Ivanova... Sorry, David.
Edit: Not a Jew. And she has a direct quote about a Jewish father and everything. Thanks again, Michael from Hartford.
