The Summer Olympic Games in Rio

The Summer Olympic Games
By Margaret Daley

How many of you have been watching the Summer Olympic Games right now? I’ve been following certain sports like beach volleyball, diving, swimming, gymnastics and track. The games have something for everyone. I understand in the next summer games in Japan there are going to add five more sports: surfing, softball, baseball and two types of rock climbing. That announcement made me think of all the types of sports there are. There must be hundreds, at least that’s the way it seems to me.

But what I’ve enjoyed the most about the televised games is seeing Rio again. I went years ago for a week and loved the place. I’ve enjoyed the stories about Rio and its customs and people. I get to revisit landmarks I’ve seen in person. There was even a story on a restaurant my friend and I ate lunch at thirty-eight years ago. It is still going strong. What I remember about the restaurant was the huge portions they served and that I really had no idea what I was ordering because the menu was in Portuguese and the waiters didn’t speak English.

Are you watching the Olympics? What is your favorite sport to watch?
