Olympics represent more than just medals
Thursday, 11 August 2016 11:40:00 Europe/London
So far the Olympics have shown great sportsmanship, and each and every country should be proud to see their own athletes representing them. Team GB are already proving to be so much more than just a country.
This week, Adam Peaty claimed a new World Record as well as a gold medal in the men’s 100m breaststroke.
"I came out tonight and took the first 50 easy and came back with everything I have got. I did it for my country and that means so much for me."
Whilst our other swimming athletes Siobhan-Marie O’Connor in the 200m and men’s 4x200m relay seized two silver medals. In the water at the Maria Lenk Aquatic Centre, divers Tom Daley and his partner Dan Goodfellow bagged an amazing bronze for their synchronised dive.
We’re yet to see gold medalists Jessica Ennis-Hill and Mo Farrah compete in the athletic events, and are predicted to bring home 2 more golds. It is estimated that Team GB could beat their 65 medals from the London 2012 games and could collect a total of 79 this year in Rio.
The Olympics aren’t just about the medals though, for the contestants it means more than anything to just compete in the games and for the viewers we’re just proud to see our athletes giving it their all.
