What a great opening weekend for the Olympics. What did you all think about the opening ceremonies? I know there’s been mixed reviews but I personally loved them.
The US is looking great so far! After the first two days the US is in second place overall with 11 medals: 3 Gold, 5 Silver, and 3 Bronze.
On Sunday morning Kim Rhodes became the first American to win individual medals in five consecutive Olympics. She won a gold and scored nearly perfectly in skeet shooting missing only one shot out of one-hundred.
The U.S has also won a number of medals in swimming this weekend including gold in Women’s 100 Butterfly, Men’s 400, and Men’s Freestyle relay.
Both the Men’s and Women’s gymnastics teams came in first during Sunday’s qualifying round and seem to be the teams to beat!
Speaking of gymnastics, my favorite Olympic moment from this weekend has been this video of Aly Raisman’s parents during her bar routine. Check out this video if you want a good laugh!
Can’t wait for more Olympics!
