I love the track and field events and the weightlifting events. As someone who will probably never place first in a race or lift some crazy amount of weight in a clean and jerk, I’m amazed at the feats these athletes accomplish. All their hard work, practice and determination come to light in this major event. And it’s really exciting that this year, one of my husband’s friends from college, Ruben Sanca, is in the Olympics for the 5000 meter (5K) race!
Ruben previously went to the University of Massachusetts Lowell and was on the track team with my husband. Ruben immigrated from Cape Verde to the US when he was 12, and has dual citizenship in both countries. He is representing Cape Verde at the games as one of the country’s only 3 athletes in attendance.
With that, we at Inspired Wellness Solutions wish Ruben as well as all the other athletes that have worked so hard to be at the Olympics the best of luck as they compete!
