Pre-Answer:  Three Words  (5-letters)  (6-letters)  (5-letters)

U.S. Women's Foil Team Earns World No. 1 Ranking For First Time Ever

Answer:  FIRST THINGS FIRST

(Excellent Jumble pun!  But, of course we won’t be seeing any Olympics this year.  Nope!  The COV-19/Coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic has put the kibosh on that, for this year.  Hopefully, we will be able to have them in 2021.

Perhaps we’ve seen it on some previous Sunday, but the word “softly” is coming up as a new clue word.  I sent an email to ralis95, so he can update his world famous database.  Five of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “slivha” sometime in the past.  They all came to me pretty quickly.  The answer letter layout was a super sixteen letter jumble.  I first tried FINISH for the middle word, but it used two of the three I’s!  I did see FIRST though.  GTTRS was just nonsense.  Then, I thought the middle word might be STRING, which brought me back to FIRST.  But, the remaining letters gave me SHIFT.  FIRST STRING SHIFT didn’t make any sense, in this context.  Finally, I saw THINGS, which gave me the proper final answer.

Fine cartoon of an Olympic athlete.  It’s hard to say what sport is her specialty.  The hair up made me think gymnastics, but she could also be an ice skater, or track athlete.  Or, maybe she’s a fencer!  Not enough info to make an educated guess.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I don’t think so, LindaLee. I think they’re different girls. I just glean through Google Images for photos, and occasionally paintings, that I think will help the puzzle, and make the post a little more interesting.
