Athletes to Watch Out For in Rio

Athletes to Watch Out For in Rio

Let's Rio at Stan and Joe's

The Rio Games are going to be the most-watched television event in U.S. history. Don’t miss a single beat with watching the Olympic Games here at Stan and Joe’s. We will have drink and food specials for all of the games. Be on the lookout for our specials, but there are some other factors to watch out for too. There are several athletes that are returning to keep their titles. And whether it’s in the pool, on the track, in the sand, on a balance beam or on the roads, one thing is for sure: history will be made.
Here are the athletes to watch out for in Rio.

1. Michael Phelps, Swimming

Whether you’ve watched the Olympics or not, you’ve heard about Micheal Phelps. Phelps is the most decorated Olympian ever with 22 medals. He will hit the pool and return to Rio in August.

2. Usain Bolt, Track & Field

Rio will be Usain Bolt’s last Olympics. Bolt will be going for a trifecta: 100 meters, 200 meters, and the 4×100 meter relay. Watch as Bolt tries to do what no other person has ever done on the track.

3. Simone Biles, Gymnastics

You may not know her now, but you will. Simone Biles is favored to succeed fellow American Gabby Douglas. This two-time reigning World all-around champion is ready to take on Rio. The 18-year-old could be favored to win five medals in Rio.

4. David Boudia, Diving

Boudia, the Olympic platform champion, was the only American to earn a World Championships diving medal in 2013. In 2012, Boudia headlined an American diving team that captured four medals, the first U.S. Olympic diving medals since Syndey. Boudia could become the first U.S. driver since Greg Louganis to win gold in back-to-back Olympics.

5. Allyson Felix, Track & Field

Catch her if you can. Champion sprinter Felix, returns to compete in her fourth Olympics. Although her main event is the 200 meters, she won’t be competing in that event because she didn’t qualify. She will compete in the 400-meter and the 4×400 meter dash.

6. Katie Ledecky, Swimming

Ledecky will compete in her second Olympics. She won the 800-meter freestyle at just 15 years old. And she’s only gotten better since. Ledecky is the first swimmer to ever sweep the 200m, 400m, 800m and 1500m frees in a major international competition. So Ledecky will be chasing history and world records in Rio.

7. Women’s Soccer

As the reigning World Cup Champions, the US Women’s Soccer team will return in the Rio Olympics. Rio 2016 is the sixth Olympics to feature women’s soccer. The U.S. has a good chance of taking home the gold.

There are plenty of athletes to look out for in the Olympics. When you’re favorite event or team member is competing, join us at Stan and Joe’s. We will be showing every Olympic event and competition. Join us as we cheer for the USA to bring home the gold.
