Brandon Penny  Digital Media Content Development Manager for @teamusa.

I, like many others, tend to use social media to show off the highlights of my life. So here’s me at “Dancing with the Stars” last week. You’re welcome. (Oh and, @mirainagasu, I’m super excited to talk to you as well. Always.)

Well... My fourth #TeamUSAAwards and fourth @whitehouse visit in the books. All I can say is this doesn’t get old. Oh and #TeamUSAWeek involved a lot of Mr. T.

Last week @mbrucato16 and I met @mrbobbybones (😱 kind of my idol), and about five days later I met Megan’s baby, Henry. What a week! (Mostly for Megan...I did nothing.) Super proud of you for becoming a mom, Megan! More importantly, I appreciate youuuu for not giving birth at or before the show 😬

The photo on the left has sat framed on the dresser of my childhood bedroom for roughly 16 years. My humorous and encouraging dad made it after a trip to Lake Placid.

The photo on the right is of Jessie Diggins and Kikkan Randall on Feb. 21, 2018 achieving what used to be viewed as impossible - winning Team USA’s first cross-country skiing gold medal (and first women’s medal!). While I am bummed I wasn’t the one to win it (ha!), I am blown away to know I was there to witness their feat in person as part of the #TeamBehindTheTeam. And yes, Jessie and Kikkan can thank my dad for somehow, indirectly, predicting their success.

So proud of this woman! Congrats to four-time Olympian, Olympic bronze medalist, the nation’s most decorated singles luger, A+ Team USA ambassador and good friend @erinhamlin on being selected @TeamUSA’s flag bearer for Opening Ceremony!

Apparently I posted to Instagram zero times in 2017. So, here’s a {very limited} look at my year and a few highlights. Kidneys + #TeamUSA (and I guess friends/family too) pretty much sums it up!

Congrats to the #FinalFive on winning Team of the Olympic Games at #TeamUSAAwards! Wonderful night celebrating the incredible achievements of every @TeamUSA member at the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

It remains my honor and privilege to have spent the past seven years covering these athletes and countless others.

Crazy where a far-fetched dream and a little hard work can take you! #TBT courtesy of @jpenny27... From being an Olympic enthused kid, to covering Team USA and hanging with @rickiefowler down in Rio. Could not be more proud of my little bro @bppenny
Keep up the good work!#tbt #rio2016 #teamusa

#TBT to that time two years ago when I was told to escort trampolinist @Nicole_Ahsinger around the world to China for the @youtholympics. Two years later and this young woman is GOING TO RIO as #TeamUSA's sole women's trampoline competitor!!! Congrats, Nicole, on accomplishing a dream you first voiced at age 3. So proud to know you.
((L: Proof Nicole arrived safely at the Shanghai airport. R: Nicole competing for her spot on the Olympic team last weekend.)) #LoveMeSomeTeamUSA #RoadToRio #Rio2016 #GoTeamUSA #IKnewHerWhen #YoureWelcomeForProtectingYou

That time I spent two weeks in Norway for the Winter Youth Olympics interviewing the world's top teenaged athletes, including this snowboarding phenom who breaks records left and right.
