It's all about family for Olympian Erik Kynard

We've heard so much about Erik Kynard the Olympic high jumper, but what better way to get to know Kynard than through his number one fan - his mom.

Kynard is ingrained with a strong work ethic thanks to his parents. He saw how hard his mother, father, step father and step mother worked their whole lives. He knew nothing was going to be given to him - he had to earn it through hard work. Kynard's family established early on a strong foundation for him to know he can strive for greatness.

Kynard's mother, Brandynn Adams, has always provided support for whatever her son takes on. Bradynn is quite proud of her eldest son not just for his athletic and Olympic accomplishments, but also for developing into the humble young man he has become.
