1. Bruce Springsteen's daughter joins Team USA for the Tokyo Olympics

Her father sings "Born in the USA," and now she's part of Team USA. Jessica Springsteen, Bruce Springsteen's 29-year-old daughter, will compete on the U.S. equestrian show jumping team at the Tokyo Olympics this summer. "Been dreaming of this since I can remember! Endless gratitude for my team, friends and family for helping me make this a reality," Jessica wrote on Instagram. She will ride her 12-year-old horse, Don Juan van de Donkhoeve, who she also thanked. "There's no horse in the world I'd rather be on this journey with, thank you Don! You're my horse of a lifetime," she wrote. Jessica was an alternate at the 2012 Olympics, but this will be her first time competing. Spectators for the Tokyo Olympics are limited, but perhaps they'll make an exception for an American icon such as The Boss.
