Donald Trump, Simone Biles lead the short list for Time’s Person of the Year
Time magazine has announced the finalists for its 2016 Person of the Year, and the short list includes a 19-year-old gymnast, a group of whistleblowers, a Super Bowl halftime performer, and a handful of politicians. Time annually aims to select the person or idea that has had the greatest impact on the news and world in the past year, a tradition it has followed since 1927. This year, the magazine's 11 finalists are made up of Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles; Hillary Clinton; President-elect Donald Trump; Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan; U.K. Independence Party head Nigel Farage; Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi; Russian President Vladimir Putin; Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg; the whistleblowers about the water crisis in Flint, Michigan; musician Beyoncé Knowles; and the CRISPR scientists, who developed technology that can edit DNA. If Putin were to win the 2016 Person of the Year — for what Time describes as "[making] headlines … with his country's intervention in Syria and evidence showing that Russian operatives were responsible for the hack of Democratic National Committee servers" — it would be his second time with the designation, after being named Person of the Year in 2007. German Chancellor Angela Merkel was Time's Person of the Year in 2015 due to her leadership in the Syrian refugee crisis and the Europe debt crisis; Ebola fighters were the 2014 "person" of the year. The 2016 Person of the Year will be announced Wednesday morning on the Today show and on Time's website. Learn more about the finalists and the justification for why they are nominated here.

I love this quote from Aimee Boorman.  All coaches should strive to do the same. 

“I have never been a coach that coaches from my ego, so my answer might surprise some people.  My goal as a coach has always been to raise healthy, happy kids.  They are kids first, then athletes.  I am so proud of showing that ultimate achievement with Simone.  There is no one that can say that she is not a healthy, happy, well adjusted young lady, on top of being a World and Olympic Champion.  Her success has been a combination of how she was coached in gymnastics as well as how she was treated as a human.  I have been involved with gymnastics for 37 years and I am honored that I could prove that you CAN do it “differently”.
