Did you watch the Olympics this year? If you didn’t, here are a few exciting things you missed. This year the Olympics were held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Many athletes from the United States won 5 medals. The Olympics lasted many days so the athletes had time to compete in all the events like gymnastics, volleyball, swimming, and more. A few outstanding athletes were Simone Biles, Usain Bolt, etc. About 2102 medals were given to the athletes this year. For example the united states got 121 medals this year. And check this out, many of these athletes stayed in some of the world’s most beautiful facilities while in Brazil.
After the Olympics were over some of the athletes stayed in Brazil for a little longer. They also got a celebration party after the hard job they did to win their medals and represent their country. Can’t wait for the next Olympics, until next time!
