    This is a very exciting time of the year for my family and I.  Ever since I was a kid, my siblings and I would post up in front of the television every four years to watch the Olympics.  Sports have always been an important part of our family life, everything from basketball and tennis to American football and soccer.  Since my father is from Spain and I was raised there until the age of eight, we love watching soccer and my boys love playing with their grandpa.

    Thankfully, my son has had a very rewarding athletic journey.  He seems to excel at all sports with basketball and soccer being his favorites.  The relationships that he has forged with his teammates have been wonderful and playing sports has also contributed to raising his confidence and self-esteem.  We are extremely proud of him and hope that sports continue to be a big part of his life well into adulthood.  Soccer has especially been great for getting in touch with his Spanish roots and for improving his athletic performance and endurance.

Team USA

    It has been an absolute pleasure watching Alex Morgan doing her thing out on that soccer field during the the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.  Not only is she a fierce competitor, but she also breaks boundaries for women all over the world.  No matter how she is feeling, or even if it’s that time of the month for her, she goes out on that field and gives it 100% each and every single match.  Her determination and endurance are inspirational to me and many other women.

    Having reliable protection is key when you are a world-renowned soccer champion.  Always® Infinity Pads are made with super absorbent, yet super light material called FlexFoam™ that can absorb 10X its weight.  They offer amazing, 100% leak-free protection, yet amazingly are so soft and flexible that they feel like nothing.  Each one fits your form and stays put for secure protection.

    You also might be wondering how Alex Morgan can do some of her signature moves on the soccer field.  Tampax Pearl Regular Tampons help stop leaks before they happen and provide protection for up to a maximum of 8 hours, even overnight!  They have a unique BUILT-IN BACKUP™ Braid, which helps stop leaks by channeling them back into the core.  Also, they offer FormFit™ protection that gently expands to fit your unique shape.  All of this means that Alex doesn’t have to worry about embarrassing leaks or stains when she does her thing out there!

Team USA

    You can help support Team USA by shopping for select Proctor & Gamble products at your local Walmart.  As you head there during the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, keep an eye out for the Proctor & Gamble products that are tied in with the Olympic theme.  It’s a great way to not only save a little money, but to invest in and fuel the dreams of future members of Team USA!

  1. Too often kids give up before they even try. They don’t understand that even olympians had to start somewhere. Great post.

  2. I am loving the Olympics this year!!!!! They are so good. Love that in the post you included products that I always use in my house! Great post!

  3. GO USA!!! What a great way to inspire kids to succeed.

  4. It’s important to have solid protection during “those days”. Tampax and Always are two names that guarantee leak free while doing our daily activity.

  5. My husband has the Olympics on constantly so I look up while I am working once in a while. I really love watching the synchronized diving. That would be my favorite.

  6. Some of the swimming events are really fun to watch. I definitely think the Olympics are a great source of inspiration for kids who want to do sports.

  7. Soccer is huge in our house! My little girl loves it. We eat, breathe and sleep soccer in the spring and summer.

  8. I love how P&G is sponsoring the Olympics. I swear by Tampax Pearl to keep me active without any worries!

  9. I haven’t watched any of them–but if I had it would have been swimming. I sure wish they had “protection” like this when I still needed it. Maybe I would not have needed as many gym excuses as I did–but then again…

  10. Neely (@Neelykins) says

    Huge fan of P&G products. They never let me down!

  11. What a great post to help inspire and encourage little dreamers. I really loved reading this, it’s wonderful!

  12. I’ve always been drawn to watching the gymnastics events. It is amazing to see how strong and flexible those girls (and boys) are. Swimming events are my next favorite! I am happy to know that P&G continuously offers their support for Team USA!

  13. I love the Olympics too and have stayed up too late every night watching events! I love track and field but Simone has won my heart in gymnastics, though! I am a supporter of their sponsors though.

  14. I don’t really watch sports much, so I haven’t really watched any of the Olympics. I have kept up with Micheal Phelps and Ryan Lochte some, but that’s about it.

  15. I’ve really loved the women’s gymnastics. It’s always inspiring to me to see people following their dreams and pushing themselves.

  16. Swimming and gymnastics are the favorites in our house. But we love all of the events. We have actually been getting very little sleep because of the Olympics – we just can’t get enough of it! I usually buy P & G products, but I will make sure I do today and help out #TeamUsa – woo-hoo!

  17. I am all about supporting our team in the Olympics because they also inspire and motivate our kids to follow their dreams. So glad that there are companies supporting our team as well!

  18. I’ve enjoyed watching the swimming events. My hubby likes to watch the track and field events.

  19. The gymnastics has been amazing this time! And of course the swimming as well. My kids especially love the diving.

  20. It’s so inspiring to see female athletes and like you said it’s a good idea to keep prepared. I use Tampax myself.

  21. Gymnastics is always my Olympic fav! I watched a bunch of swimming too because I feel that’s all that is ever on TV!

  22. The Olympics right now with women are amazing!! Women are winning so hard and USA is getting a lot of GOLD!!

  23. Swimming, track, gymnastics, beach volleyball are my must see olympic events. We watch as a family and text each other throughout the day when we have updates. We’re geeky that way. LOL

  24. I will say that this year, I’ve watched a wider variety of sports coverage. I’m mainly a gymnastics, track and field, and swimming type of gal, but I got into things like water polo, table tennis and weightlifting this Olympics.

  25. Sports besides football are not huge in our house, but we definitely always watch the Olympics. Encouraging kids to do what they dream up and aspire is so important.

  26. Reesa Lewandowski says

    The Olympics are a huge deal to my two kid. They discussed them when in school and so when they came home they wanted to be athletes in everything. If they wanted to pursue this dream, there is no way I would not encourage them. 🙂
