The Calgary Stampede has revealed how many people they believe contracted COVID at the event. Organizers say 71 confirmed cases have been connected to the grounds for a pretty low percentage of people who went. Medical experts say it’s still about a week too early to say the total tally since we’re not quite two weeks passed the event. Calgary has increased to up over 700 active cases in the last week after a few weeks of declining cases.

Team Canada swimmer Penny Oleksiak is officially the most decorated Canadian Olympian of all times for the Summer Olympics! She won bronze in the pool last night, securing Canada’s 9th medal. She is tied with Speed Skater Clara Hughes for winning the most medals for Team Canada. It’s so much fun watching Penny swim! The Canadian women continue to bring in the hardware winning all 9 medals so far.

USA Gymnast Simone Biles has withdrawn from the Team Gymnastics competition. While it wasn’t clear at first and many people thought she was out for a physical injury, it turns out Simone is struggling mentally and has decided to put her mental health first. Simone said (via CNN), “Whenever you get in a high-stress situation you kind of freak out. I have to focus on my mental health and not jeopardize my health and wellbeing.”

“We have to protect our body and our mind,” she continued. “It just sucks when you’re fighting with your own head.” While she’s taken a lot of criticism online for her decision with some saying she should forge on to represent her country, her Team and her sponsors including The Gap are supporting her decision.

And of course it features a very handsome Paul Rudd!
