There are a lot of athletes I could have chosen for my moment of zen, but because of the great pictures of John Daly, I decided to choose him. I hope you find the Winter Olympics a Zen moment. I, obviously, realize there is controversy over Russia's anti-gay propaganda laws, but the Olympics are about peace and honor. As the Olympic Charter states "The practice of sport is a human right. Every individual must have the possibility of practicing sport, without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play." Go Team USA! I also wish all of the athletes a wonderful and safe games.
Sport: Skeleton Race
Why watch him: Daly was a BMX racer in his teens and a college track star. He finished in fourth place at the 2013 World Cup race, which is a long way from coming in 17th place back in 2010 at the Vancouver games.
