USA's Joe Kovacs Explains Why His 2016 Silver Medal is ‘Really Scratched Up'
08/05/2021 11:14am

Joe Kovacs made a huge mistake after winning his first Olympic medal, a silver in mens shot put in 2016.After earning the medal, Kovacs was given a wooden case to store it for safekeeping. The wood, apparently, rubbed against the medal when the case opened and left the medal with scratches all over.My silver medal from Rio looks pretty terrible, Kovacs said. So, Im glad I have another one to show because that one got really scratched up in the box.The 32-year-old Kovacs claimed a second career silver in the shot put in Tokyo, and he knows where he wont put it when he arrives back home. Kovacs isnt going to let that medal out of sight, even on the flight back.Im going to keep it around my neck the whole way home to keep it protected.

His Dad's Love Brought Jordan Windle From a Cambodian Orphanage to the Olympics
08/05/2021 11:12am

People told Jerry Windle he would never be a dad.Now hes watching his son, Jordan, compete in the Olympics.There was such homophobia and bigotry around the concept of a gay person being a parent, Jerry Windle told TODAYs Hoda Kotb. Even folks who loved me said, you cant be a dad if youre going to be gay.He proved them wrong.One day, he recalls, I started thumbing through a magazine and there was a story in there of a man who adopted a child from Cambodia, and it didnt mention a mother.The story went on to talk about the close relationship between the father and his son, and something kind of clicked in my head The article listed the number of an adoption service and so I called the number and I said I just read an article, is it possible for a single person to adopt a child and they said Yes, it is.Months later, he held a very sick little boy in his arms at a Cambodian orphanage. Malnourished and fighting infection, Jordan was struggling to stay alive. It was love at first sight.He was 2 years old but he was 16 pounds. I didnt know if he would live or die, Jerry said. I promised him that I would do everything that I could, that he wouldnt ever have to suffer again. I would make every sacrifice I could as a parent to get him every opportunity.Jordan Windle isrepresenting the United Stateson the U.S. Olympic Diving Team after placing second at the Olympic trials. While his father wont be there to see him competedue to COVID restrictions on spectators, Jordan said hes super excited.I can usually hear my dad out of everyone in the audience, which is awesome. Not having him at the Olympics will be different, said Jordan. I wish he was there, but that doesnt really change what Im going there to do: To have fun, show off a little bit, and put on a show for everyone. Thats going to be my intention and Im hopefully going to make him proud.Jordans journey to the Olympics began at an early age. When he was just 7 years old, a man named Tim OBrien told Jerry that his son reminded him of the legendary diver Greg Louganis. OBriens father, Dr. Ron OBrien, had been Louganiss Olympic coach, and coached Team USA over the course of eight Olympic Games.He said that he just saw something in Jordan, and it was kind of physiological but also inexplicable, and so Jordan said he wanted to go into diving lessons and I said OK, if its something you want to do, lets do it, Jerry said. And so at 7 years old he started diving, and he won his first junior national championship two years later, which is almost unprecedented for somebody that just got into a sport.I know the hard work that hes put into it, its been earned, and Im just really excited and proud that with his coaching staff, hes been able to accomplish such an amazing feat, said Jerry.At 16, Jordan returned to Cambodia to compete in a diving exhibition that was meant to inspire young children in the country. Jerry said that the pair received a massive greeting when they landed at the airport.There was a sea of media We didnt expect it, we didnt know how much the people of Cambodia knew Jordan, and they knew him because of the internet Hes kind of a national hero in Cambodia, Jerry said. We got off the airplane and I started looking all over the place, thinking Angelina Jolie had just arrived or something. We really thought either the king of Cambodia or Angelina Jolie was here, someone big.And then they started yelling out his Cambodian name, Pisey, and we were like Holy smokes, Jordan, this is for you, Jerry recalled.Jordan said that the trip was awesome and he felt right at home while visiting.I went there to put on an exhibition for orphans and school kids that havent really had the opportunity to grow, and it was extraordinary, Jordan said. Being able to speak to them, through a translator, and share where I came from in my life and how I was able to actually become who I am today because of my dad was awesome.Jordan Windle competes in the mens 10m platform final during the 2021 U.S. Olympic Trials at Indiana University Natatorium on June 12, 2021 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Photo by Dylan Buell/Getty ImagesHe said something to the crowd that was non-scripted but it just really hit me in my heart, Jerry said, noting that he was paraphrasing Jordans speech. He said You know I am just like you, Im a child of Cambodia, and he went on to say that the only difference between him and them was that he was given an opportunity. And then he looked at the government officials of Cambodia and he said I hope you give all these children the opportunity that my dad gave me.Now, six years later, Jordan will compete for the United States at the Olympics and in his heart, hell also be representing Cambodia. He recently got the Cambodian flag tattooed on his arm so people can see it when he dives.Its a really big honor for me, Jordan said. Theres a lot of people, a lot more eyes on me, but if anything it just makes me excited to be able to perform at my best and show that all this hard work can hopefully pay off. This has been a dream come true and its an amazing opportunity to be part of.While Jerry hasnt been able totravel to Tokyoandwont be in the standsfor Jordans Olympic dives, he knows his son will feel his support from home.I know that Jordan knows that Im with him, Jerry said. That I physically cant be there is incredibly disappointing, because I just love the show that he puts on Though I cant be there with him, were going to have a huge watch party out here in California, and I know that theres another one going on in Florida with family and friends out there. Its disappointing but at the same time this is Jordans journey and this is the pinnacle of it, and I want him to enjoy this experience as best he can Thats what Ive always wanted for him.Jordan said that while hes competing in Tokyo, hell be thinking of his father.I tell everyone, when they ask me why I dive, I dive purely for my dad and how much he loves watching me, Jordan said. Without him making all the sacrifices that he has, and his love and support the whole time weve been together, I really wouldnt be where I am today. I have him to thank for everything, all my accomplishments. Its been an amazing journey with him, and were still rolling.This story first appeared on TODAY.com.

And, now, as I got more and more popular, I got more and more attention, people watching me. So I feel that I was able to reach an even bigger audience.Saying it then wasnt any different from when I was saying it a few years ago, but every time I say it, I say it with the intention that I know that theres somebody out there who is probably struggling with the same issues I was and I want them to know that there is ways to feel better. They dont have to keep feeling that way.Lyles, 24, says he is lucky because he has people who look out for him.Ive been very fortunate enough to have my mother, whos been in therapy most of her life and she got me in very early, so I now have two therapists, one for my personal life and one for my sports life, he said, while adding he has an amazing team.It takes a village. I have an amazing girlfriend and everybodys very supportive.
