"It's hard to describe the passion and joy I felt running out onto the beach to these rings last night. They are an iconic part of the Olympics, and if things go well over the next 6 weeks of World Cup races, I'll have a chance to wear them proudly and represent Team USA in my second Olympic Games," Summer Britcher wrote on Instagram.
