Hello everyone, and Happy Sunday!
Today marks the last day of the Rio Olympics, bringing to a close three weeks of international athletic competition. There have been matters that have distracted from the positive spirit of the games, such as US swimmer Ryan Lochte lying about being robbed.
But, there have also been some pretty cool and positive moments that are worth remembering, like the selfie taken by North and South Korean gymnasts Hong Un-jong and Lee Eun-ju. My personal highlights include seeing India’s first female gymnast to qualify for the Olympics, Dipa Karmakar, compete, and runner Caster Semenya dusting critics off her shoulders.
Readers, what have been your favourite moments from the Rio Olympics? Will you be watching the Closing Ceremony? Let us know in the comments below!
