Summer Update: What Are the Athletes Up To?

It’s time for a summer update! A supdate! 

One thing I don’t have photo evidence of but find noteworthy is that our four USA Olympic teams are headed to Orlando, Florida for a week of training. The midsummer Floridian climate is very similar to Tokyo, so those smarties are going for a little climate/heat training before the Games. 

Okay, onto the photos. Because if you didn’t take a picture, did it really happen?

April Ross and Alix Klineman are being made into American Girl Dolls. Literally every millennial’s dream.

Jake Gibb’s feeling the love from his parents (and their cute dog whose face I really want to see).

Tim Bomgren is gearing up for the Waupaca AVP Grass Tour event July 8-11 and raising money for a friend in need. Click here for more info.

Sarah Pavan and husband Adam Schulz are making my all-time favorite TikTok in a Canadian park.
