Yesterday may have been National Relaxation Day, but it’s clear that some of our favorite celebrities (and athletes) have been doing anything but. Last we spoke, we were just gearing up for the quadrennial games, but now that we’re in the thick of it, we’ve got Rio fever. And we don’t mean the kind that Jenn Suhr caught from the local swamps. Our new favorite gymnast, who casually happens to be the best in the world, Simone Biles, has been killing it all over the Olympic™ floor. We’re all about her sass and sportsmanship. Superstars Allyson Felix and Usain Bolt are unstoppable (probably literally), and part-man, part-sea creature Michael Phelps basically has enough gold to fill a pirate’s chest. Not to mention our girls, Katie Ledecky, who is well on her way to becoming an all-time, top-decorated medalist, and Simone Manuel, the first African American woman to win an individual Olympic gold in swimming.
