Rio 2016

American shooter Ginny Thrasher took home Team USA’s first gold medal in the Olympics on Saturday, August 6, 2016.

In an interview following her victory in Rio, the 19-year-old said she wouldn’t be celebrating yet. “I have to go refocus for my next match,” the teen gold medalist said, adding that she shoots again on Aug. 11.

“After I shoot that match, I’ll be going back, straight to classes for my sophomore year,” the Springfield, Virginia, native, who attends West Virginia University, said. “They start the day after I get back.”
Thrasher beat out China’s Du Li and Yi Siling, who took home silver and bronze respectively, in the women’s 10-meter air rifle, to win the first gold medal for Team USA in Rio.
“It’s a sport of precision,” Thrasher said of shooting. She described shooting for a perfect score, which would require hitting a target that is as small as the period at the end of this sentence.

The 8th of August was an eventful day of ups and downs for the Hungarian Team. Katinka Hosszú won her second Olympic gold medal in 100 m backstroke and got into the final of 200 m medley with the 2nd best time. Tamás Kenderesi got into the final of 200 m butterfly with the best time, while László Cseh did the same with the 3rd best time. Judoists Miklós Ungvári and Hedvig Karakas finished in the 5th and 7th place on the repechage. Péter Sidi finished in the 5th place in men’s rifle shooting, boxer Zoltán Harcsa made it into the best 16, while fencer Anna Márton dropped out among the best 16. We can now firmly state that Katinka Hosszú is truly in her best shape ever. She won her second gold medal in 100 m backstroke, which is not her main event. This was much more surprising, thus touching as well. She was only in the 6th place after 50 metres, but what she did on the second 50 metres was incredible. She swam powerfully and easily at the same time. The whole world is blown away by her. Her husband and trainer, Shane Tusup wrote a love-felt letter to her after her first gold medal. Anyone who was afraid that he is too hard on Katinka can tell how much he adores her.

Katinka Hosszú  took home Hungary’s 3rd Gold Medal after winning the women’s Olympic 100 meters backstroke in the swimming competition at Rio 2016. It was a 2nd Gold Medal for Hosszú, the self-styled ‘Iron Lady’ of swimming, after her world record-breaking victory in the 400 individual medley two days earlier.

“It’s really cool, I can’t believe I’ve won the 100 back,” the 27-year-old said. “I know I’ve done the 100 back in the 400IM a million times and the goal was to make it like second nature when I came to Rio, which is how it felt. “This time I was fresh and in great shape. I just focused on the execution and was not worrying about where I came,” she added.

Hosszu, who  also swam in the 200 backstroke, butterfly and medley. She had come away empty-handed from three previous Olympic Games, despite winning five world championship titles.

Ipanema is an affluent neighbourhood located in the South Zone of the city of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), between Leblon and Arpoador.

The beach at Ipanema became widely known by the song “The Girl from Ipanema” (“Garota de Ipanema”).

Ipanema is adjacent to Copacabana and Leblon Beach, but it is distinct from its neighbour. Ipanema is one of the most expensive places to live in Rio with world-class restaurants, shops, and cafes.

At the forefront of its beach culture are the many surfers and sun worshipers who socialise daily at the beach. 

                                     

 Ipanema has played a role in the culture of Rio de Janeiro since its beginning, with its own universities, art galleries, theaters and cafes. 

                                     

 It holds a street parade, the Banda de Ipanema, during Carnival festivities, separate from those of Rio de Janeiro, attracting up to 50,000 people to the streets of Ipanema.
