Fourteen-year-old Slovakian celebrity Nela Lopušanová wowed hockey followers along with her “Michigan” objective. It’s known as that in tribute to the University of Michigan’s Mike Legg, who scored the primary lacrosse-style objective within the 1996 NCAA event. Although Slovakia misplaced 6-1 to Sweden, all anybody is speaking about is her phenomenal objective. It’s one for the ages! Did I point out that she’s 14? The “Michigan” is certainly one of my favorite targets and I used to be elated to see it finished by a youngster.

Her expertise as a runner, as a mother, and as a businesswoman affords us highly effective perception into how we might help the communities we belong to and assist others and replicate on our personal truths. It could encourage me to exit for a stroll.
