Sarah Hildebrandt competes at the 2019 World Wrestling Championships on Sep. 18, 2019 in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan.

 

Last week was another big one for Team USA athletes. While many competitions were halted midweek due to the COVID-19 outbreak, U.S. wrestlers continued on to earn 11 Tokyo quota spots at the Pan-American Olympic Qualifier in Ottawa, Ontario, the U.S. women’s soccer team won its third SheBelieves Cup title and much more. There is plenty to get caught up on, so let’s make sure you didn’t miss a beat.


Tokyo Bound

1. Anastasija Zolotic is on her way to Tokyo! The 17-year-old is a rising star in taekwondo, and has secured herself a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team!
