Representing the Best of America in the Summer Olympics

In this week's address, President Obama celebrated the beginning of the Summer Olympics by wishing Team USA the best of luck as they compete on the world stage. The President said Team USA reminds the world why America always sets the example as a nation of immigrants that finds strength by embracing our diversity and finding unity in our national pride.

President Obama thanked the American Olympic and Paralympic athletes for representing the best of America. Our Olympians always remind us of our potential -- that no matter where you're from, you can succeed with determination and discipline. That's not only the Olympic spirit, but also the American spirit.
