This week, the Curious ‘Cat asks Villanovans, “In what summer Olympic event would you enjoy participating?

Sarah Wingo, Liaison Librarian English & Theatre- “Little girl me was pretty obsessed with the gymnastics in spite of my utter lack of flexibility. I was actually a pretty good soccer player, not Olympics good, but you know I played varsity. Anyway, adult me would really like to participate in the kitten Olympics which are going on over on the Hallmark Channel because I just want to play with kittens.”






Darren Poley, Theology & Humanities Liaison Librarian- “Fencing. I spent a great deal of time fencing when I was younger. I think the sport deserves greater recognition. You can really evaluate someone’s skill set as fencing is gender neutral.”







Susan Ottignon, Research Support Librarian- “I’d like to be a participant walking into the closing ceremony having won a gold medal for Women’s singles table tennis.”








Patricia Kemp, Course Reserves & Desk Services- “Sorry, Sue. That gold is mine!”










Michael Foight, Special Collections & Digital Library Coordinator – “I haven’t been watching much of the Olympics. Actually, none at all. I know we’re talking summer events, but I would participate in skating. Speed skating. Curling is also action-packed.”







Morgan Falasca– “Swimming. I’ve been swimming my entire life. I want to stand next to Michael Phelps. I’ve always looked up to him. I would enjoy participating in the Women’s 400m freestyle.”
