Rio 2016


      Finally, I've gotten around to posting my overview of the Rio Olympics which were AMAZING!!!! My family is big into the Olympics and for two weeks our television was on channel 10 and was pretty much running most of the day. Normally in the morning they would go back and forth with the lesser known sports and the smaller heats, but as soon 7 or 8 o' clock rolled around, the family was gathered in the living room until midnight watching swimming, gymnastics, outdoor volleyball and track and field. 

Opening Ceremonies






Swimming

Amazing Katie Ledecky!
Lilly King just doing her thing : )
Michael Phelps and his teammates celebrate another victory
I watched history in the making as Simone Manuel became the first
African-American woman to win a gold medal in swimming!!!
Gymnastics
The Final Five!!!

Japan's Kohei Uchimura. Gold Winner for men's all around.
He deserved it!!!


Beautiful Aliya Mustafina celebrates her gold in the uneven bars.
She is a definite winner and publicly condemned the known Russian athletes
that were accused of doping, believing that their actions slandered all Russian athletes
that were competing in the games. 
Sanne Wevers from the Netherlands who scored a gold with
her incredible routine on the balance beam!

Track & Field



These girls were fantastic! Talk about rising from the bottom
after what the Brazilian team did to them in the relay!

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe made his appearance

Thank you Rio for the incredible Olympics and I'm anticipating Tokyo 2020!
