Did you enjoy the Rio 2016 Summer Olympic Games? We did! Actually, for most people it was a welcome retreat from what's going on in the world! Just as amazing it was to see every athlete in action; it was interesting to learn about their background. Everybody has a story to tell.

    USA Results:

      U.S. scores the top medal count at 46 Gold, 37 Silver, and 38 Bronze, for a total of 121 medals.

        Team USA’s 121 medals are the most ever for a U.S. team in a non-boycotted Games, topping the previous high of 110 from Beijing in 2008.

          With 2-3 hours of sleep throughout the games and up to two-hour bus rides between events, Gaede shot thousands of photos. Below are 45 stunning images from his collection:
