Washington: White House press secretary Jay Carney has said US President Barack Obama may watch the horse owned by Mitt and Ann Romney, compete in the London Olympics, as he loves the Games.

Carney said he had heard Obama saying, "I love the Olympics, I can`t wait for the Olympics to start", and discussing his excitement over the Games, which officially began with Friday night`s Opening Ceremony.

Carney further claimed Obama "looks forward to catching as much of the games as he can" and cheering on American athletes, although he didn`t have particular details about which events Obama would watch.

Asked if the President will watch Ann Romney`s horse, Rafalca, compete, Carney suggested he might.

"He is interested in seeing every American entrant perform well and he`ll follow every event," Politico quoted Carne, as saying.

"If his schedule allows, I think the answer to that question is yes," he added.
