No America, You can’t claim Monica Puig’s Puerto Rico gold medal win as your own

I think people forget the Olympic Committee isn’t a government agency, it’s just a gaming body. — So whether there was only 1 team, or 60 teams separate from the U.S. — The territory of that team gets to celebrate.

If Florida has its own team and wins gold, Oregon doesn’t get to say “Yes we did it.”

However, the people of Oregon can say “Well if we didn’t win it, then at least our sister State did.” — Thus we should have no issues when the Mainland cheers and celebrate with the Island.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
