Paralympic medalist Oksana Masters remains focused with her eyes on the prize!
There’s a whole lot of unfinished business from rio 2016 @Paralympics I’m determined to take care of in @Tokyo2020. A postponement or a delay only sharpen my focus that much more. pic.twitter.com/PVQNIKbU6d— Oksana Masters (@OksanaMasters) July 30, 2020

On this day 24 years ago I completed the historic 200/400 double and broke the 200m world record. Very proud to have realized this dream! And today I can still fit in the uniform!!!😁 pic.twitter.com/sS28fSRr60— Michael Johnson (@MJGold) August 1, 2020

Just turned on the Olympic Channel to catch the 3-3 USWNT vs Canada 2OT in 2012 and @alexmorgan13 just scored the game winner off a perfect cross from @HeatherOReilly w/ 2:36 remaining. What a game!!!!! Crazy to think you two are new moms now 💝💙 Miss playing with you mommas😘— Heather Mitts (@heathermitts) August 3, 2020
