Have you been watching the Tokyo Olympics? I am so excited for the summer games to be back. Even with all the things we know we need to continue to make more inclusive, rules that need to be updated, and athletes that deserve more support, I am glad we can celebrate our global community at a time when so many of us are still delaying or are unable to travel.
