Ooooo weeeeee! What a week it’s been. Tensions are SUPER high in our country but we have to realize that life will and does go on. While we have all been glued to the TV looking at politics and ranting (or scrolling through rants) on social media I’d like to clue you in on a few sportsy things that have happened.

Here is my super short list I am calling Olympics in 60 Seconds: 5 Team USA Athletes You Need To Know.
