As you can imagine, many members of the US team have overcome many hurdles and trials, on and off the field of competition. Diaz used his sport to overcome a bully at school.
And, in case you didn't know, and as if there wasn't enough Olympic television coverage already, fans can now watch the Opening Ceremonies, and for the first time ever, all 32 sports and 302 events, which will be streaming live on NBCOlympics.com.
And, for watching a video in which Diaz talks about overcoming the school bully, and sending an email to giveaway@MomsTEAM.com with 'NBC rocks!' in the subject line, you will be entered to win a random drawing for an NBC prize package, including:
- 2012 Olympics NBC Duel Flags Pin
- Trophy Cap
- 2012 Olympics Team USA Backpack
- ¾ Sleeve Raglan T-Shirt; and

The deadline to enter is noon (12 p.m.) ET on Monday July 23, 2012, so you need to act quickly!
