The South has its fair share of incredibly gifted and talented athletes (many of whom seem to hail from Mississippi!). From superstar Simone Biles to record-smashing Katie Ledecky to long-jumper Jeff Henderson, these ten Olympians swam, hooped, jumped, putted, and flipped their way into our hearts at the 2016 Games in Rio. We're so proud of our Southern representatives on Team USA.
