The USA won 121 medals at the 2016 Olympics in Rio this past summer. Americans young and old cheered on the athletes who gave it all they had at every event. My girls were especially elated to watch Gabby Douglas, Simone Biles, and Simone Manuel compete. Of course, now they're eager to be gymnasts and swimmers. It made me wonder, what I'd been doing over the past 8 years of their lives, that they might be emulating. It reminded me of why I'm passionate about fatherhood and why helping other fathers make the best of their Dad Days is so important. Sports athletes are great, but dads are the real MVPs in their kids lives. Check out the video for Volume 2 of Championship Dads for more of my thoughts about all of this.
