Taylor Swift Narrates Inspirational Promo For USA Women's Gymnastics

Taylor Swift narrated a brand-new promotional video for NBC's coverage of the Tokyo Olympics.

In the video, released ahead of the women's all-around gymnastics event on Thursday, the singer offered support and words of encouragement to the Team USA gymnasts.

"Life can surprise you. It can humble you. It can test you. It can inspire you," Swift says in the promo. "They didn't expect this to be the story. But that doesn't mean they weren't ready for the spotlight."

"They've worked for this. They've dreamed about this. They belong here. So don't be surprised as the story takes flight from here, in the women's all-around in Tokyo," she adds.

The promo ends with gymnasts Sunisa Lee and Jade Carey flashing across the screen

The video features footage from Team USA's training sessions as the soundtrack of the title song from Swift's Evermore album plays in the background.

Lee would go on to win the gold medal in the women's individual all-around gymnastics final.

Garth Brooks Concert At Kansas City's Arrowhead Stadium To Include Vaccine Clinic

Garth Brooks' fans who plan to catch the country superstar at his August 7 concert at Kansas City's Arrowhead Stadium also have an opportunity to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

According to the Kansas City Star, a COVID-19 vaccination clinic will be set up on-site during the concert.

Kansas City Chiefs President Mark Donovan said Monday that the team plans to take every opportunity to offer vaccinations at Arrowhead. The organization's "goal is to get as many people vaccinated as possible, on the business side as well as in the community," he added.

Donovan said, "We've got a little concert coming up here with Garth Brooks with about 70,000-plus fans, and we're working on having a vaccination site on-site for the concert. We'll continue to do that. Not sure if we're going to be able to do it on game days. We're trying to work through that as well."
