1. I posted about the adoption of hapa by non-Hawaiians before, so found this post from the NPR code switch team very thoughful.
2. I assume most of you know the story about those sprinters who became bobsleddders, but one US sprinter became a rugby player.3. I noticed the athletes being given something along with their medals and after some searching found this (which is from the Rio website, so is understandably biased) about the little sculptures the athletes get, and other ways they have incorporated sustainability into the games.
