Another Summer Olympics competition has come to an end and once again the United States’ athletes proved to be the best in the world.
The U.S. finished with 46 golds, 29 silvers, and 29 bronze for a total of 104 medals. China finished second with eight less golds at 88 total medals while Russia’s late charge put them in third with 82 medals.
While I truly enjoyed the countless highlights and video segments during this year’s contests, I must admit that I’m extremely thankful the event is over.
I was like many Vandalia area residents who were staying up late every night to watch the live telecasts. I also spent countless hours watching the recorded Olympics that filled up my DVR every day.
Thank you U.S. athletes for making this another outstanding Olympics. I look forward to the sleep that is coming my way now that the Olympics is over.
