Saturday presented another long day and more challenges and a guy who never showed up to do interviews. Fun.
After eight days of competition, I finally got to tell a medal story. Weightlifter Sarah Robles became the first U.S. women to take a medal in the competition since 2000.
On Monday I ventured out to the diving stadium. What I got was wind, cold, divers struggling to adjust to the weather and a 700-word recap.
Tuesday ended up being a pretty light day. After the past couple of weeks we’ve had, that’s fine by me.
Wednesday was a light day, but it certainly wasn’t light on excitement or history.
I had almost nothing to do on Thursday which made it the perfect time to shop at the mega store in the park. Remember folks: don’t judge a book by its cover.
Only two days of competition remain in the Rio Olympics. The end is very near.
All Brazil wanted from the Olympics was gold in men’s soccer. They got that wish, and the scenes from inside the Olympic Park were incredible.
The weather gave the Rio Olympics one last parting shot, but it didn’t dampen are last day of work at the Olympics.
It’s over. The Olympics have ended. We waited a day to leave to let the airport traffic clear out. But it was a great day to relax after all of our work and to finally pack for the trip home.
Roughly 26 days after leaving the United States for the adventure of a lifetime, we made it back to the U.S. Wednesday morning. Coming home has never felt so good.
