I don’t know about you but I just cannot get enough of the Olympics — and particularly the spectacular athletic performances of the American women athletes. Women are the backbone of the US team this year and they are taking medals across many sports with dazzling displays of athletic prowess. They are powerful, strong, fearless and fierce competitors.
The Olympic Games are ongoing, and we may well see many more gold, silver and bronze medals for US women before the closing ceremony. For now, let’s think about the tremendous spirit we have seen among athletes such as Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Simone Manuel, Laurie Hernandez, Gabby Douglas, Katie Ledecky, and so many others. Each event is a display of what it takes to train hard, to stick with long and grueling practices for so many years, to struggle, to fail and to win. All of us can draw lessons from these fine athletic and personal stories.
