One thing is for certain — the Olympics always has us like…
From astonishing world records to tragic injuries, we’ve recapped some of the most noteworthy moments from the 2016 Rio Olympics this past weekend:
Katie Ledecky set a new world record in the Women’s 400m Freestyle Final at 3:56:46. She beat her old world record by 2 seconds.
Adam Peaty of Great Britain set a new world record and brought home GB’s first medal of Rio in the 100m breaststroke.
Sadly, Gabby Douglas will not be advancing to defend her title into the all-around gymnastics finals on Thursday. She lost by half a point to teammate Aly Raisman. Despite the fact that Douglas finished in the top three, each country is only allowed to send two members to the all-around finals.
Aly Raisman officially has the cutest parents ever. Ever.
Serena and Venus Williams had their first loss ever at the Olympics in a doubles match against Czech Republic’s Lucie Safarova and Barbora Strycova.
Samir Ait Said of France broke his lower left leg in a freak accident when he landed badly on the vault.
The US Men’s Team took home the gold in the 4×100 freestyle relay, led by Michael Phelps. He swam his best ever 100m and helped the US edge out the French.
Wu Minxia of China set a world record by being the first person to win five gold medals in diving. She scored her fifth gold medal in synchronized 3m springboard with partner Shi Tingmao.
Forty-one-year-old Oksana Chusovitina of Uzbekistan is the oldest Olympian to compete in this year’s Olympics. Rio is her seventh game and she successfully qualified for the vault finals! To put that into perspective, she’ll be competing among women who are the same age as her son.
