The Olympics are coming to an end, and I wanted to leave you with my final quote of the week themed around the Summer Games in Rio. Today's quote comes from a heroic demonstration of leadership and what the Olympic Games represent in some people's minds. This was an incredible moment.
Just a few days left in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio and we're crushing it in medals. I was looking around for a quote and for some reason this one stood out. This message and speech has always been at the top of my list. Must read for today's Olympic quote.
Today's quote is a powerful message that should be heard everywhere. The Olympics are getting criticized for its double standard take on Olympians. Gymnast and 3-time gold medal winner, Simone Biles said it best.
Every time an Olympian wins a medal, they are handed something else. What has been flowers in the past has now been replaced by this colorful thing that nobody seems to know a purpose for. I now have an answer.
Kristin Armstrong has not only represented the United States in the best way possible by bringing home the gold but talk about Boise pride. We have a chance to welcome her back home with open arms on Monday afternoon at the Boise Airport!
