We’ve been soaking up all the track action in Rio on TV, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And it’s not over yet…here’s today’s schedule of activities in Rio:


Things on the track in Rio stay hot including the Women’s 200 M Finals tonight, Men’s 200 M Finals Thursday evening, and the Men’s 4 x 100 M Finals Friday night. Lots of drama still ahead not the least of which is the quest for 2 more GOLD medals for Usain Bolt.   For the full Rio schedule, click here: Rio Event Schedule.

We’ll be keeping the Red Stripe cold, the Jerk Chicken hot and our emotions ready to erupt for the balance of the week!

Until next time…
