If you don’t live under a rock you are very aware of the summer Olympics happening right now in Rio de Janeiro. The games are about a week in and we’ve already seen some absolutely incredible things. Here at 4YE there are a few of us who just can’t get enough of the action – it’s a little sad how little time we spend not watching the Olympics if we’re being honest – and wanted to share with you some of the best moments from the games so far.
