With the 2020 Olympics officially underway, the members of Team USA are finally having their moment to go for gold as they compete in a variety of sports including gymnastics, swimming, track and field, skateboarding and more.
Although years of training have absolutely prepared each and every qualifying athlete for Tokyo, many competitors can't help but give credit to music for helping them work harder, faster and stronger.
"I do listen to music as I train," Team USA's track and field star Isaiah Jewett told E! News at Luxury Experience & Co's Pre-ESPYS event. "I feel like it definitely gives you more freedom because you get to get into the creator's emotions and you definitely get to feel what they wrote. It gives you a vibe to get ready to train and everything like that."
