Rio Olympics Recap: Days 5 - 6 (Gymnastics, Tennis, + Swimming)

Gymnastics

Let me just take a moment to say... I called it. Well, pretty much everyone called it. Simone Biles won Gold in the Women's All-Around Finals today!!!! Aly Raisman won Silver (yes!!) and Aliya Mustafina of Russia won Bronze. It was an intense competition and it definitely came down to the wire for who would win Silver and who would win Bronze midway through the competition. Of course, Aly nailed her beam and floor routine, securing her second place. I can't wait for the Individual Finals!!! 

Sunday, August 14th: Women's Vault and Uneven Bars Finals; Men's Floor and Pommel Horse Finals 
Monday August, 15th: Women's Balance Beam Finals; Men's Rings and Vault Finals (USA doesn't have anyone for either of the two) 
Tuesday August, 16th: Women's Floor Finals; Men's Parallel Bars and High Bar Finals 

Tennis 

Nadal and Murray won their third round of singles today. Madison Keys of the USA and Steve Johnson of the USA won their third round of singles as well. Hopefully we will see these Americans in the Finals!!! #represent 

Swimming 

Yesterday: 
Prenot placed second in the Men's 200m Breaststroke. 
Adrian placed third in the Men's 100m Freestyle. 
Team USA won Gold in the Women's 4x200m Freestyle Relay. 

Today: 
Murphy won Gold in the Men's 200m Backstroke. 
Manuel swam an Olympic Record time and tied for first in the Women's 100m Freestyle. 
Phelps. The man. The myth. The LEGEND. He won his 22nd GOLD medal today in the Men's 200m IM Final. This is his FOURTH straight win at the Olympics in the Men's 200m IM. In other words, he's dominted the past 16 years... #yes #winning
