Think you know all that happened at the Rio Olympics 2016? Try this quiz

The Rio Olympics came to an end on 21 August with the usual suspects Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt walking into the sunset with their legacies enriched further. We saw a star in the form of Katie Ledecky swimming to the forefront of an American Olympic team that will now look to her as their inspiration. Mo Farah completed his ‘double double’ despite the best attempts of his competitors to stop the British long-distance runner. (Tripping...really?)

All in all, the Olympics turned out to be pretty underwhelming to say the least. Not a classic, yet definitely not the failure it was touted to be either.

Amidst the bizarre stories that the Rio Olympics were witness to, we can safely confirm that Ryan Lochte is back in the USA... robbery or not. The Mongolian coaches who stripped in front of the world have now been reunited with their clothes. And Japan’s commercial for the Tokyo 2020 Games may have unintentionally looked better than the Rio Games itself (Not that it was a hard goal to achieve).

So now that the Olympics are finally over, care to take a ‘quiz’ and figure out how closely you paid attention to the not-so extravagant extravaganza? Winner gets a Speedo from Ryan Lochte. Wish we could vouch for the condition you might get it in though.
