The Morning Thing celebrated the start of the 2016 Summer Olympic games today. The crew is SUPER excited.
The Morning Thing crew shared their favorite Olympic athletes for The Morning Thing Fave 5:
Kelsey Bryte loves Kerri Walsh Jennings (of course since Kelsey plays volleyball).
Jessica Wells is cheering for gymnast Simone Biles (and can relate to her height).
Marcy Rinehart loves swimmer Missy Franklin (because she really loves her family and doesn’t hide the power of Mom and Dad’s support in competition).
Aubrey Bailey also will be cheering on a swimmer, Ryan Lochte. (He is coming into the Rio Games with a new focus and goal for hitting the medal stand).
Eddie Dilts really likes cyclist Brent Bookwalter. (He loves how Brent pushes himself in every race).
Dan Monnin is cheering for Olympic gold medalist Ashton Eaton. He will be returning the the decathlon for the Rio Games (and we will hopefully see him back on the medal stand).
