Air Force athletic events canceled due to government shutdown

In a brief statement, the Academy announced that "home and away intercollegiate athletic events have been cancelled until further notice".

The Academy has said that it will "work to reschedule as many missed events as possible" once the shutdown has concluded, per a press release.

Michael Phelps opens up about his struggles with depression and anxiety
Phelps - the most decorated Olympian of all time with 23 gold medals - first contemplated suicide after the Athens 2004 Olympics. Phelps announced his retirement from the sport after the 2016 Rio Olympics in which he won 5 gold medals and one silver medal.

A Navy sports information director said the school is still playing its events Saturday, while the Army has not addressed the shutdown, though the Black Knights are expected to play games as scheduled.

In addition to the hockey and men's basketball teams, the Air Force rifle, men and women's swimming, women's basketball and men's gymnastic teams were all scheduled to compete on Saturday.

While many government divisions are closed, the military operates slightly differently to the rest of the government. But it's a reminder of how so many things need to be adapted very quickly when the government shuts down.
