Six St. John’s alumni made Team USA in the Olympics, most of them on the saber and epee fencing teams. I am anxious to see if St. John’s is among the winners. That would be a grand moment for me. It’s been some time since the St. John’s basketball team garnered all the laudatory headlines on the sports page, so this is a welcome return.
I wish all the athletes well. Playing on the team and attending classes at a top Catholic University is accomplishment enough, and may they all meet with true success in life. It’s not always who makes the most money.
To all the Olympic athletes: may they find the true success of life.
