9 Girl Power Athletes to Follow at the Summer Games in Rio 🏅 ...


Not all athletes make great role models, but this year, the Summer Games will feature dozens of women who we could all look up to in some way. Who are these girl-power athletes, the ones you might want to DVR and fan-girl over? Here are a few of my stand-out faves, most of whom you might not know yet.

1. Brooke Crain

Sport: Cycling

Okay, I don't know what you were doing in high school, but I was kind of lazy, sleeping late and skipping homework whenever I could. Brooke, though? This will be her second Summer Games, and she's still in high school... she's also the youngest person ever to make a main event at a Supercross in 2009 and the only junior elite to reach the top 10 in the 2010 Supercross series.
