It takes a village to house an Olympian, but what does it take to create that village? Yvan Dubois, Director General of the Montreal 1976 Olympic Games and Mayor of the Montreal Olympic Village tells us how it's done. He was one of the first to create the environment that makes the Olympic Village special and contributes so much to the magical experience of the Games.

Plus, kudos to Team Olympic Fever Sarah Gascon and the US Women's Handball team for winning their series against Canada for the right to go to the 2019 PanAm Games in Lima, Peru.

Also, Team Olympic Fever member Samantha Achterberg is competing in the Modern Pentathlon World Champs on September 10 and 12 - catch the action on upimtv.org.
