Tonight, the opening ceremonies of the Tokyo Olympics will be underway.  Thousands of athletes with lifelong dreams and work, will converge onto the capital of the country, and for one night the world, to be recognized for their achievements.

Heartbreak is in the books for many competitors, but also triumph, and groundbreaking performances are set to be in the works for sure.

With so much controversy surrounding the US team alone, it will be interesting to say the least, as to how we will come out in this series of competitions.

The US always has a strong team across the board, and exceptional training during the off years back home.  We see many countries doing the same.  It is expected that this year, with the pandemic slowly balancing out, and the athletes and fans eager for competition, we will see and unprecedented amount of records being broken this year.
