A Better Mid-South: Olympic Fever

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Editorial by WMC Action News 5 General Manager Tracey Rogers:

If you are tired of talking politics or stressing over the challenges we face in our community, country, and our world--I've got the perfect thing for you.

Michael Phelps going for record gold, Kerri Walsh playing for her 4th consecutive gold, and Simone Biles leading Team USA in Women's Gymnastics.

The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio are underway, and I can't think of a better way to celebrate our country.

For 17 days, you have the opportunity to watch the best in athletic ability and strength of character.

We here at WMC Action News 5 are proud to provide you the opportunity to gather your family around the television or computer and watch the Olympics.

With the heat bearing down, you can stay in the A/C and cheer on Team U.S.A.

If you have questions about the Olympics and where to see your favorite athletes, you can always email me at abettermidsouth@wmctv.com.

Cheering on Team U.S.A will make this a Better Mid-South and a better world.
