Congratulations! You're an Olympian! But your family and friends have to wake up at 3 a.m. to watch you compete.
Congratulations! You’re an Olympian, but unfortunately your event will be televised at 3 a.m. in the morning, when the only people who will be watching you compete are those in the same timezone as you (maybe).
