Yahoo! Sports Favorite Olympic Moment: Vince Carter Dunks on Frederic Weis

The folks at Yahoo! Sports asked us to share our favorite Olympic highlight, and for me, it was an exceptionally easy call: the United States' Vince Carter jumping over France's Frederic Weis, who stands 7-foot-2, and dunking during preliminary-round action at the 2000 Games in Sydney.

Carter's jam was more than simply stylish; it sent a message, namely that this United States squad would not be stopped. The team won its five preliminary-round games by an average of 29.2 points, crushed Russia by 15 in the first medal round, squeaked by Lithuania in the semifinals, and then defeated France by 10 to take home the gold.
