The idea behind Who Won the Week is to give you the opportunity to select who (or what) you think “won” this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies, TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.
I will be posting this prompt on Sunday mornings (my time). If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.
My pick for who won the week this week is the Olympic athletes. Over the past two weeks, 10,305 individual athletes representing 206 nations, territories, and principalities competed at the Tokyo Olympics. In a tremendous display of athleticism, these Olympians set new Olympic records and broke world records.
But was strange — and even eerie — about the 2021 Olympics was that, due to record-shattering numbers of COVID-19 cases in the Tokyo area, the Olympic athletes performed at nearly empty venues and with few fans to cheer them on.
Still, given the strangeness of having few live fans to witness their amazing feats, the athletes who were there demonstrated remarkable skills in their chosen sports. And these young men and women deserve to be this week’s Who Won the Week winners.
What about you? Who (or what) do you think won the week?
