Rio Olympic Games of 2016 are Over
There were boos of sadness when the International Olympic Committee President, Thomas Bach, announced: “I declare the Games of the XXXI Olympiad closed.”
Boos of sadness could be heard from my home, as well. Tony and I loved watching this memorable event in which runners, swimmers, gymnasts, and other skilled athletes from around the world, come together in a sportsmanlike atmosphere and compete for the prize of a gold, silver or bronze medal.
There were so many wonderful wins in these games. Those participating had lived such disciplined lives, training for months and years. Now the moment of opportunity had finally come to possibly win the prize of gold, silver or bronze!
