The Olympics are upon us! And when it comes to U.S.-dominant sports, the first weekend didn’t disappoint. Team USA swimming took home eight medals in the first weekend, a record-breaking feat.

Many Team USA swimmers attribute their success to one element — in particular, the competitor in the next lane over. Having another Olympian just a lane over inspires them to swim faster, shattering records and winning gold medals.

Makes you think, how could a little healthy competition boost your accomplishments?

Let’s paddle on over to jobs.
