The Olympics' Inspiring True Stories

Guideposts Editor-in-Chief Edward Grinnan and his dog, Millie

I know a lot of you are waiting for the broadcast of the opening ceremonies of the London Olympics, so I won’t keep you. But in case you missed it, check out our roundup of the most inspiring U.S. Olympic athletes.

You’ll meet some incredible human beings as well as world-class athletes. I’m looking forward to learning about inspiring athletes from other countries.

My big dilemma for tonight is that the Yankees play the Red Sox and that might trump the ceremonies from London. I’ll probably be flipping back and forth.

Anyway, good luck to all the athletes over the next couple of weeks. Which inspiring competitors will you be rooting and praying for?
