Here’s your roundup of the five most interesting things I’m enjoying or thinking about this week.
1.) Black Lives Matter
On May 25, George Floyd’s life was taken under tragic circumstances, which has evoked a wave of unprecedented activism and unity against racism and inequality.

In an ongoing series from adidas, two-time Grand Slam champion, Garbiñe Muguruza, and five-time gold medalist in swimming, Katie Ledecky, catch up to ask each other questions and chat about their respective sports.
