20 Unforgettable Moments From the Summer Olympics: Kerri Strug, Michael Phelps, Greg Louganis (PHOTOS)


On Friday, the best athletes from around the world will gather in London for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, which is already poised to be one of the best, if not most competitive, events in recent memory.

Swimmer Michael Phelps, runner Usain Bolt and gymnast Gabby Douglas are just some of the names expected to take the U.K. by storm during the course of the 17-day event, as the Olympians gear up and get ready to go for Gold.

So, in honor of the 2012 Olympics, Celebuzz is taking a look back at some of the Summer Games' most memorable moments since it was first launched in 1896, from triumph (Kerri Strug's Gold medal-winning vault, in 1996) to heartbreak (Gail Devers' tumble in the 100M finals, in Barcelona) and scandal (Canadian runner Ben Johnson's positive test for steroids, in 1988).

Which moment do you remember most?

Have a look at Celebuzz's list of the 20 Most Memorable Moments from the Summer Olympics gallery, above, then be sure to check back throughout the Games for the most comprehensive coverage of the Olympics on the Internet.
