Photo Journey: The Rio Olympics 2016 Medals & Records

Even  doing this write up a few weeks after we watched these stunning races live, and I still get goose bumps. To see the greats live and in top form was once in a lifetime experience. The energy in the crowd, especially for the underdogs had me emotional each time I experienced it. This is the stuff that dream are made of, the culmination of a journey of genuine sacrifice, hard word, sweat, pain an grind, all paying off in a few seconds. And then that one moment of glory makes it all worthwhile!
