Watch obsessives like to argue that their favorite collectibles are better or just more fun investments than things like art and cars simply on account of portability. Art is stuck on the walls at home; cars can’t go into the restaurant or office with you. A watch, though, is always there on your wrist: at that business meeting, last night’s party, and while you compete in the Olympic games. I’d like to see someone carry a Picasso during a 100-meter sprint! Below are the best watches from the 2021 Olympics. The best part about any Summer Olympics is that the events occur at the perfect time of the calendar year.


Wrestling, Taekwondo, and Judo
Combat sports evolved a great deal over the past 20 years. The Ultimate Fighting Championship established itself as a legitimate sports organization. Fighters such as Ronda Rousey, Brock Lesnar, and Conor McGregor became stars recognized outside of the world of mixed martial arts. We may one day even see MMA in the Olympics.
A future UFC star may be competing at the 2016 Summer Olympics. We just don't know it yet.    There is one other reason you should watch wrestling during the Olympics. It was only a few years ago when we nearly lost Olympic wrestling. Wrestling goes back to the ancient Olympics in Greece. An Olympics without wrestling is like baseball without "Take Me Out to the Ballgame."
Support wrestling, even if you only do so for two weeks out of every four years.

Pete Bevacqua, Chairman, NBC Sports:
There is nothing more powerful in the media than the 17 straight days of Olympics dominance. Despite being thrown a series of curveballs over the last 18 months, the power of the Olympics delivered to audiences across the various platforms of NBCU has proven itself unequaled. The pandemic fundamentally altered virtually every aspect of these Games, but our team pivoted and reimagined while showcasing history-making performances across 41 sports. Once again, we have seen the unparalleled power that these Games have on the media and our culture.”

Make It or Break It
The Freeform teen drama ran from 2009 to 2012 and followed fictional character Emily Kmetko (Chelsea Hobbs) after she received a scholarship to attend a prestigious Olympics gymnast training center in Colorado. #whattowatch
