Memphians blog from Rio - WMC Action News 5 - Memphis, Tennessee

Evan Hacker, Conni Stock, Jason Tunstall, Eric Winfrey, Adam Payne, Arika Payne, and their two kids, Hogan and Hannah, are several Memphians who traveled to Brazil with plans to attend the 2016 Rio Olympics. They are blogging during their trip and providing us with an inside look at the country and the Summer Games. With connections through their outreach company, Center Circle, which hopes to bring change to the game of soccer in the Mid-South, they were welcomed by familiar faces and have local guides to show them around the country of Brazil.
