    It took until the final few medal events of the Tokyo Olympics, but the United States pushed ahead of China to close the 2020 Games as the big winners. The U.S. took home more gold medals than any other country (39) as well as more total medals than any other country (113). USA and China were locked at 38 golds apiece with only a few final medals to be decided. It was the U.S. women's volleyball team that earned the Games' decisive gold with a clean, three-set sweep over Brazil. Team USA rounded out its haul with 41 silver medals...

    Flanked by members of the famed "Miracle on Ice" U.S. Olympic hockey team, President Trump celebrated the team's captivating 1980 performance at a campaign rally on Friday. Forty years removed from defeating the Russian hockey team in the semi-finals of the 1980 Olympic Games, Trump honored the U.S. team's historic victory by bringing captain Mike Eruzione and coach Herb Brooks's daughter onstage during a campaign stop in Las Vegas. The team stood behind Trump as the president ran through his stump speech and lashed out at the fake news media. The players wore red Make America Great Again hats and...

    Colin Kaepernick has a soul mate in Megan Rapinoe. The two of them could be a pair. Rapinoe announced to the whole world that she would not be singing the national anthem at the games in protest of Donald Trump Soccer star Megan Rapinoe has vowed to continue her national anthem protests while representing the US in next month’s Women’s World Cup — calling it a “good ‘F you'” to the Trump administration. “I’ll probably never put my hand over my heart,” the 33-year-old national co-captain told Yahoo sports.“I’ll probably never sing the national anthem again.” Rapinoe, who already sparked outrage by taking...

After the United States Women’s National Soccer Team’s (USWNT) won the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup for the fourth time, co-captain Megan Rapinoe and midfielder Allie Long can be seen disrespecting the flag.

    The United States Women’s National Soccer Team (USWNT) won the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup on Sunday. In a match against the Netherlands, the USWNT defeated the Netherlands with a 2-0 victory. The first goal, as a penalty goal, was scored by co-captain Megan Rapinoe and the second by Rose Lavelle. This is the fourth time that the USWNT won the Women’s World Cup, solidifying the U.S.’s position as the country with the most Women’s World Cup victories. The USWNT also became defending champions as it has won in 1991, 1999, 2015, and now 2019. Before the match started, Rapinoe...

    @ALLIE_LONG I understand the excitement of the moment, but please NEVER disrespect the 🇺🇸 flag by dropping it on the ground! — Poetic Spaniard (@PoeticSpaniard) July 7, 2019 It appears that Allie Long wanted both hands free so as to better enact a self congratulatory hands in the air salute. This is unacceptable and demonstrates her priorities and lack of understanding on how one treats the flag. Twitter reaction was highly negative… Women’s national soccer team members Allie Long and Megan Rapinoe stepped on an American flag after Long dropped on the ground as they posed for post-game photos...

    American women's soccer co-captain Megan Rapinoe is not planning to go to the White House if the national team wins the World Cup. A reporter from Eight by Eight, a soccer magazine that looks at the sport and its place in culture, asked Rapinoe if she was excited about going to the White House if her team wins the Women's World Cup. "Psssh, I'm not going to the f*****g White House," she fired back before the reporter finished the question. "No. I'm not going to the White House. We're not gonna be invited. I doubt it." The magazine posted the...

    Yesterday at the Women’s World Cup, the U.S. defeated Thailand 13-0. The lopsidedness of the result is further proof that the tournament is a second rate sporting event. Soccer is the world’s game, but women’s soccer is not. Not many countries take women’s soccer seriously and, with the possible exception of the U.S., those that do don’t take it nearly as seriously as they take men’s soccer. Hence, mismatches like the U.S.-Thailand farce. There just aren’t enough competent women’s teams in some continents to make up a strong world cup field. At the real World Cup, a mismatch like yesterday’s...

The six U.S. team members also took home five gold medals and one silver medal for their individual high scores in the competition,...
  • Adam Rippon May Be Getting A Reality Show — Why His “15 Minutes” Aren’t Up

    Adam Rippon is back in the news, this time from rumors that he is producing a reality show with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. The news is likely to ruffle some feathers, as Rippon has become a polarizing figure — perhaps unfairly. Rippon, 28, is a 2018 Winter Olympics athlete and medalist. He received significant attention for being one of the first openly gay athletes to represent Team USA at a Winter Olympics and the first openly gay male athlete to win a medal in a Winter Olympics. But throughout the Olympics, it seemed as though Rippon made headlines just...

    When it ended with the United States’ first gold in the sport at about 4:15 a.m. Eastern (6:15 p.m. in Korea), more than 77,000 people were streaming the event through NBC’s Olympics website. How many were watching on television on NBCSN? It ended so late that data will not be available until Sunday for the 3 to 4:15 a.m. ET portion of the telecast. But an average of 1.58 million viewers were watching from 1:30 to 3 a.m., a remarkable figure given the hour, the sport and the channel.

    The United States has won at least 25 Winter Olympic medals at each of the last four Games. With one week to go in Pyeongchang, the Americans have visited the podium just 10 times and are on pace to post their lowest medal count at Winter Games since 1998. After winning 13 medals each at the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics and 1998 Nagano Olympics, Team USA medal totals at Olympic Winter Games increased exponentially. First, it was 34 trips to the podium in 2002 at Salt Lake City. Then, 25 medals at Turin in 2006. A record 37 Winter Olympic medals...

    If ever there was a true Olympic champion, it’s Adam Rippon. As the figure skater glided across the ice after his free skate, his final bow in his first and last Olympics, he did so with no gold medal. Yet Rippon did something more. The Olympic Creed itself deems it so. The Creed is an expression of value for the entire Olympic movement that, since it was first uttered over a hundred years ago, has guided the Games and its athletes. “The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part,” the Olympic Creed...
