Rio Olympics produced some of the greatest athletes ever
The Rio Olympics will present a problem for General Mills, maker of Wheaties, the Breakfast of Champions. The long time cereal Company has a very tough decision to make after the 2016 Summer Olympic Games.
Rio Olympics Greatest Gymnast – Simone Biles
Simone Biles won 4 gold medals and 1 bronze medal in gymnastics. With her floor exercise, she brought the house down. Beyond any doubt, she is the greatest gymnast on the planet.
Rio Olympics Greatest All Around Athlete – Ashton Eaton
With his second straight gold medal in the Decathlon, Ashton Eaton still has the title as the “World’s Greatest Athlete” and rightly so. Will we see him again in Tokyo? I hope so.
Rio Olympics Greatest Swimmer – Michael Phelps
Winner of 5 gold medals and 1 silver medal in Rio, Michael Phelps is the greatest swimmer ever. But he was already the greatest swimmer before he went to Rio. What he did in the two previous Summer Olympic Games, in Beijing and London, set the stage for this. No matter what he does in the future, he will always be a Champion.
Rio Olympics Fastest Human and the Greatest Sprinter – Usain Bolt
This guy is the greatest sprinter ever. He has won gold medals in the 100 meters, 200 meters and the 4 X 100 meters relay, in THREE STRAIGHT OLYMPICS. No one will ever accomplish this amazing run again. He is the world’s fastest human. I can’t imagine anyone in the future who will be faster.
The Rio Olympics produced many more amazing athletes. But these four were the ones who stood out as being the best at what they did.
Congratulations to ALL of the ATHLETES who Gave Everything they Had in the Rio 2016 Games.
