XXXI. Summer Olympic Games, Rio de Janeiro - Day 16, 21st August, 2016

The men's marathon was scheduled on the last day of the Olympic Games. The athletes started it in heavy rain. 140 runnes could complete the race out of the 155, Anđelko Rističević finished 119th clocking 2:30:17. Eliud Kipchoge from Kenya won the race with 2:08:44.

Then came the basketball final. There isn't much to talk about the mutant aliens of Area 51 American team knocked out Serbia to 66:96.
If we see the positive side: nobody is better than Serbia in the world. (Americans don't count now, their position in basketball is the same as Germans' in football.) Well done, boys!!!

A message to Nemanja Bjelica from the podium (Bjelica had to cancel his participation at the Olympic Games in the last minute because of an injury): this medal is yours, too!

The water polo boys were there to support the team
