Hi everyone. I was sad to see the summer Olympics end on Sunday night. Despite several challenges in Rio, this was probably one of my favorite Olympiads to watch. I enjoyed watching the games with my loved ones for the past 17 days. My favorite sports are gymnastics, swimming and track. The U.S. dominated in these and several other sports. I enjoyed watching the U.S. women’s gymnastics team compete. It was exciting to see them win gold! Michael Phelps and Katie Ledecky were my favorite swimmers to watch! Jamaica’s Usain Bolt was also great in the 100 and 200-meter sprints. It was also nice to see the U.S. men and women win gold in basketball. Although I didn’t catch any of the football (soccer) matches, Brazil won gold. Soccer is a huge part of life there so I’m happy they won.
The U.S. took home 121 medals. China had 70 medals and Great Britain 67. I’m not happy about waiting another four years for the games to start again in Tokyo. In eight years (2024) they will be held in either Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco or Washington. I hope I can attend in eight years. How about you, did you catch any part of the Olympics? What were your favorite sports to watch? What did you like and/or dislike about the Rio Games?
