Kind of like when the US TV networks focus on American athletes. You would almost think a majority of their viewers are Americans. Weird. Like, what does being American have to do with competing in a sport? LOL


I thought Mormons couldn't dance. LOL

This is the Faith section, not the sports section. I can't believe someone each day is surprised that there is an article about Mormons in the Faith section. Anyways, when I lived in Phoenix I was pleased to see so many articles in Arizona about Mormons too. A lot of what the Deseret News writes gets picked up by other papers. I appreciate that. Keep it up.

It wasn't that long ago the Mormon Olympians were from Utah, Idaho or Wyoming. Today, they are from Argentina to Mongolia. Nice article.
