MAKERS Celebrate the 2016 Rio Olympics

MAKERS Celebrate the 2016 Rio Olympics

So far, the Rio Olympics have been monumental, groundbreaking, and tear-jerking to say the least.

Simone Biles took home her fourth gold medal, Michael Phelps took home his 22nd, and Simone Manuel became the first African American woman to win a gold medal in swimming.

Also, we can't forget about Kayla Harrison who first made judo history as the first American to take home gold in judo back in 2012. In Rio, she won her second gold medal for USA, retiring as a two-time Olympic champion.

Let's take a look at some of our MAKERS' reactions to these remarkable games:
