The Rio Olympics have ended and the outcome was outstanding! Here are some highlights of the Olympics.  The USA men’s and women’s teams won 121 medals total. They were the best in the Olympics, and to top that, the second place team, Great Britain, got only 67 medals. That means that the US won by a long shot. Many great people were in the Olympics but also some casualty were made. We all know the great Michael Phelps and how he is one of the biggest legends in the Olympics. He will retire this year after the end of the Rio Summer Olympics which has just ended. He left with 5 golds and 1 silver. You will be missed Michael Phelps!
Ibtihaj Muhammed another important part of this Olympics was the first person ever to wear an hijab at the Olympics. A hijab is a religious head covering Muslim women wear. She is an important figure because she shows of her right for religion.
Also some drama has occurred. Ryan Lochte’s story is about getting mugged, lying about it, and causing an international commotion, a series of events that might have happened because, like a teen, Lochte didn’t want to tell his mother about what he did on Saturday night. Locate has said that he had been robbed at gun point but no alleged videos has said that he did get robbed so he is suspended for ten months.

The next Winter Olympics (in two years) will be held in South Korea and the next summer Olympics will be in Japan Tokyo 😄.
