It’s Olympics time and it’s definitely is one unlike any other. We’re definitely excited for it and can’t wait to watch the women’s gymnastics team compete. But while we’re in between watching the games on television and doing other things, we’re fallen down a deep dark TikTok hole and can’t stop watching everything that we can from the Olympic athletes.
Here’s some Olympians from around the world that your should be following to get your behind the scenes views of what is happening in Tokyo and with their everyday lives.

At just 19 years old Kearns studies in the United States, but she is a native of Sydney, Australia. Kearns did not compete in the 2020 season at USC, where she goes to school. The Olympian took a leave of absence to train with the Australian National Team in preparation for the Tokyo Olympics.
Her TikToks are a lot of fun and show so much. Definitely worth the follow.
His abs alone are worth tuning into anything that he does. The diver does some death defying stunts and we’re entranced by every move he makes.
And his abs. We love the abs.
WORLD CUP CHAMP! 🥇🇯🇵🔥 ##inmyhouse @jodieharsh♬ My House – Jodie Harsh
The rugby player is from Colorado and was an army specialist. He’s married and loves Christmas. His videos take place all over Olympic Village and are filled with a lot of smiles and fun. Definitely worth the watch.
This is the Hawaiian natives third Olympics. He was in the 2016 and 2020 Olympics. In 2016 the team took home the bronze. He runs his own coaching and consulting business, which he runs by video chat even when he is out of the country, traveling to play. His Tik Tok’s take you behind the scenes and give you some real insight. I love that he really tells it like it as and his taste tests are fun.
This first time Olympian is from Vermont. She played field hockey, basketball and soccer before transitioning to playing Rugby full time in college. She attended Quinnipiac University.
Her Tik Toks are fun and hilarious. She doesn’t take herself too seriously, which is always a good thing. But she is passionate about her sport and we do love that.
Laurie isn’t competing in this Olympics, but she did in 2016. She is however in Tokyo as an announcer. She injured her knee right before the Olympic Trials. Laurie is always fun, bubbly, and isn’t afraid to make fun on her Tik Tok.
comment some deep questions, I’m feeling kinda gross & that’d be fun (make some friends and answer ones you like)♬ full song on soundcloud – gi <3
If you look up inspiring, MyKaylas picture is right there. The woman is a powerhouse and has taught us all the meaning of never giving up. She fought for her position and we are so proud of her. Forever an Olympian and always an inspiration.

Grace is always the first person that you see hugging a teammate, and supporting them. Grace radiates positivity and she does just that in her Tik Tok posts. The athlete is filled with excitement and fun. She doesn’t take herself too seriously, but she does when it comes to competition. She kicks ass.
His in depth analysis of the swag that Australian’s get at the Olympics is a lot, but it’s fine, cause one is distracted by the fact he has better hair than should be allowed on a human.
It’s the small microphone and the rowing facts that will get you. She’s open and secure in who she is, smart and witty. She has a no nonsense attitude that makes us laugh and cheer her on.
Australians are like it’s The Olympics, here’s everything that is happening. And we’re applauding it. Melissa is a 4x Olympian who you can tell treasures the experience, but can and entertain all of us. We’re sure she will when diving, but she also does on her socials.
Just follow him. He’s hilarious. The trials and tribulations of being 7 feet tall in the Olympic Village…
She’s at her first Olympics and she’s bringing everyone along. And she’s giving all the tips to be more sustainable.
Jordan was born in Cambodia and adopted at 18 months. It’s a part of his story, which is all sorts of INSPIRING. What is also inspiring is Jordan’s passion for life, his relationship with his Dad, and that smile.
A local to Kamiloiki Skatepark in Hawaii Kai, and says he likes to start every day surfing to clear his head before going skating. He’s a master on the board and his tricks are out of this world. Not to mention he looks sharp as fuck in a suit.

Boy can she jump and boy can she love. Love her videos with her boyfriend – they are adorable.

Look, we’ll be honest, we just watched the video below and that was all we needed. That and the knowledge that he’s 6’5″ was enough. We’re in TikTok love!
