"If you want to be the best, you have to do things that other people aren't willing to do." - Michael Phelps
Watching the Olympics is both awe inspiring, and inspirational. We are watching top athletes from all over the world compete not only against each other but against their own personal best.
Almost every year there are a few stars of the Olympics who stand out by not only winning the gold, but by pushing themselves beyond what anyone thought possible. The Olympics as we know them today are inspired by the ancient Olympic Games, which were held in Olympia, Greece, from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD
While each year we are amazed with what the Olympic athletes are able to do to achieve a medal, it appears they push themselves as well as each other to continue to improve. This inspires each of us to be the best we can be. Simple start can be feeding yourself and your family better with IQed , exercising, and finding time for family, fun, and friends!
Here's how the Olympics athletes have continued to improve over time.

Simone's "Biles" move defies the laws of physics
:"On what planet is it physically possible for a tiny young woman, not even five feet tall, to cap a series of rapid-fire somersaults with a single leap so high in the air it allows her to complete not one but two full revolutions, only to land solidly on her feet? The unprecedented move, named after its 19-year-old creator, has even physicists mystified.
Oregon State University physicist Faye Barras, Ph.D., was floored after first seeing footage of the move. “It’s incredible,” she told Inverse, mystified after roughly calculating the insanely high amounts of force involved in landing the jump. "
You have the better chance of being the best you can be today than ever before!
