The Rush: Olympian Simone Manuel on inspiring women, her COVID-19 diet, Simone Biles and more

WATCH THE VIDEO ABOVE to see today’s piping-hot, fresh-outta-the-oven episode of THE RUSH with Jared Quay! We’ll let you know everything you didn’t know you needed to know about sports. Other stuff too. But mostly sports.

It’s Wednesday, May 20, 2020 and here’s what Jared’s cooking up:

  • Olympic gold medalist Simone Manuel hops out of the pool to guest co-host The Rush! She and Jared chat about:

  • Life in COVID-19 quarantine (spoiler alert: Simone’s just like us...doing home workouts and eating poorly)

  • Her relationship with fellow Olympian Simone Biles

  • The pride Simone takes in inspiring others

  • The prospect of live sports without fans

  • Tom Brady’s workout with teammates in Tampa

  • Whether or not she’s pulled a Michael Jordan “flu game” with competitors poisoning her pizza


THE RUSH will be back tomorrow. Until then, stay safe and check out our archived episodes here.
