Rio Olympics Highlights

Despite the Zika fears, political unrest and crime alerts before the Olympics in Brazil, we can dare say it has been a great success.  

These are some of our favourite Rio Olympics memories.

Caster Semenya winning the 800m women’s final, setting a new South African record.

Usain Bolt again proved himself to be one of the greatest athletes of all time, but also one of the most charming.  He will be running as a guide for a blind runner in the Paralympics.

 

The Ryan Lochte Whodunnit: The American swimmer has said that he ‘over-exaggerated’ the story about being mugged early one morning as him and three teammates went home.  No Ryan, you LIED.  You never got mugged, you vandalized a service station!

Simone Biles captured countless hearts when she captured a slew of gold medals in gymnastics.

 

Michael Phelps became the greatest Olympian of all time, extending his gold medal grand total in the pool to 22.

Neymar became a Brazilian hero when he scored the winning goal in a penalty shootout against Germany on Saturday to win the country’s first gold medal in soccer.

And we saw the first ever Refugee Olympic Team compete – displaced from their homes but not discouraged from reaching their dreams.  10 Refugees made up the team.  Unfortunately none of them won any medals.

Wayde van Niekerk delivered the best sprint of the Games, when he broke the 17-year-old world record, winning the 400m in 43.03 seconds.  His coach, Tannie Ans, got just as much publicity.

 

Now we wait for the Paralympics, which start in Rio on the 7th of September.
