Moms run the world. So, is it any surprise that Team USA is sending these ten moms to Rio for the 2016 Olympics? Of course not. Because even though being a mom is a full time job, the following women are able to juggle motherhood and being full time athletes.

As if their ability to balance parenting and sports isn’t impressive enough, even more so is the fact that most of these women have been to the Olympics before! Some have been several times and are gold medalists already. They are truly an inspiration to us all!

It just goes to show pursuing your dreams may not be easy, but anything is possible if you believe in yourself and work hard.
