…Reach the Home Stretch

2016-rio-olympics759-1

Well, we made it…almost. Tomorrow night will see the closing ceremony for the Rio Olympics, and what an Olympics its been.

From the US dominating in the pool to the US dominating in women’s gymnastics, it’s been a good summer games for the United States Olympic team. At least that’s the case in the pool and gym. 

Unfortunately this summer’s games have not been without their controversies. From a diving (or tripping) finish to the women’s 400m final to an alleged armed robbery followed by mismatched stories, there are parts of this year’s games that some would rather forget.

Still, it’s been an entertaining games to watch. Were they worth it in the long run…well, we’ll see. For now, just sit back and enjoy the last few events and a closing ceremony that’s sure to be as spectacular as the opening.

  1. week two just not as riveting…I like track and field, but they didn’t show most of it – just highlights from the majority of the events.
