Wylie, Texas’ very own Jackie Galloway brought home the bronze medal after defeating France’s Gwladys Epangue 2-1 in Taekwondo.
Other top performers included Michael Phelps, who earned five more gold medals and one silver to take his total to 28 Olympic medals – the most in history. Simone Biles made her much-anticipated Olympic debut, winning gold in the Women’s Vault, Women’s Team All-Around, Women’s Floor Exercise, and Women’s Individual All-Around. Biles also won a bronze medal in the Women’s beam final. She is a heavy favorite to repeat at Tokyo 2020. Katie Ledecky was another top performer in 2016 as the 19-year-old swimmer from Stanford dominated the pool, and took home 4 golds and one silver.
