Increased Vocabulary

My new Olympic vocabulary words of the weekend are:

Repechage: from the French, meaning second chance. a trial heat (as in rowing) in which first-round losers are given another chance to qualify for the semi-finals.


Peloton: again from the French, referring to the large main group in a road bicycle race.

I love the Olympics!!
