A Remarkable Summer Olympic Games Close
So many individual stories are striking - Simone Biles' gymnastics withdrawal, Caeleb Dressel's golden performance in the pool, first gold for Philippines, three medals for Ecuador, first medals for San Marino, Team USA squeaking past Team China for the medal table win, a shared high jump gold, double world records in hurdling, and one in the triple jump, and more, more, more...
But the fact that the Games happened at all gave us proof that it could happen, that life is moving forward, that we can be #StrongerTogether. While the global pandemic still goes on, #UnitedbyEmotion we can accomplish big things.
Team Ireland's Natalya Cole puts it succinctly well, on behalf of the athletes.
