Olympic Shout out #17



Dear US Men's Volleyball Team,

I can't imagine what it must be like to have to deal with such a random horrible tragedy in the midst of a time when you should be at your happiest competing. You're my final individual shout out of the games. I give you a standing ovation. You fought very very hard, through crazy odds, and you did it. You brought home the Gold Medal. It's an amazing story. I wish for you to savor this moment of victory and for you have time when you come home to reflect on your experience and to properly grieve for the loss of your coach's father-in-law. You stayed focused and represented your country well. Now it's time to focus on your loved ones yourselves.

With Sympathy,
Owen
