In a span of 17 days, thousands of the top athletes on the planet showcased what had been, in most cases, at least four years of relentless training. The Summer Games gave us nearly 3 weeks worth of men and women striving for success. It proved that even when surrounded by great achievement, there’s still an opportunity to be even greater.
