Why the Diversity of the U.S. Women's Gymnastics Team Is So Important
Team USA is breaking barriers before the competition in Rio even begins

With a mix of races and ethnicities—black, white, Latina, Jewish—this was easily the most diverse group of women to represent USA gymnastics at the Olympics. And while each woman was selected for her ability and potential to medal, that doesn’t change the fact that seeing the different faces on this year’s team is important and also pretty damn cool.

I’m so effing exciting to watch these ladies compete, and I’m even more excited for the little kids who get to have them as their role models.
