Inspiring Olympic Story: Simone Biles

Abandoned by her parents, adopted by her Catholic grandparents -- She's the best gymnast in the world. Faith and Family undergird Simone's success. Celebrate grandparents!

Thanks for the link. I've read about her and find her the most inspiring story of the Olympics. Haven't seen a single second of them, so looking forward to watching this.

Here's another inspiring video. "Yes I Can!", made for the Special Olympians.

Not sure if you've linked it here before or not. My wife found it. It brought tears to my eyes. These wonderful people strive without excuse; without regard to circumstance or "disability". I love those who were dealt a short deck and wring every last advantage out of it. Inspirational stuff!
