For Americans, basketball is often the most-followed sport at the Summer Olympics not to mention a highly popular sport nationally. It helps that the U.S. Men's Basketball Team roster is made up of some of the best and most beloved stars of the NBA. Only once since the sport was added to the Olympics did the United States team not bring home a medal in basketball but in 1980 they didn't even compete as one of many nations to boycott the games.

Recently however other events have been capturing the attention of fans with so many inspirational stories. Viewers were glued to the swimming lanes in 2008 when Michael Phelps set numerous Olympic records and brought home eight gold medals. As a bonus, the sport also happens to include hot male swimmers and some of the hottest women in the Olympic team.

The best summer Olympic Games event is often a matter if preference for the fans watching around the world, but for the athletes competing, it's their chance at being named the best on the planet in their discipline. So whether your favorite sport is gymnastics, beach volleyball, track and field or soccer, the Summer Olympics provides a bit of something for everyone with each event both entertaining and fulfilling the dreams of athletes around the world.
