North Shore native, and two-time Olympic gold medal swimmer Conor Dwyer abruptly retires.

Simone Biles did something eye-popping again this week (see below).

And we talk with recently retired U.S. figure skater Adam Rippon about winning bronze at the Olympics in South Korea, his retirement, and his new book “Beautiful on the Outside”.
