As the Rio 2016 and the Games of the XXXI Olympiad come to an end, Twitter has become a major platform for how sporting events, governing bodies and associations, and professional athletes engage and enhance the experience of such spectacles.
All eyes will be on Brazil in just a few days, as the world's top athletes join together in Rio for the 2016 Summer Olympics. What happens when daytime television of the XXXI Games begins to take the attention of your employees?
The vast majority of athletes at the Olympic Games will not leave with a medal, but they will leave with the honor of being an Olympic athlete for the rest of their lives. There is no such thing as a "former Olympian."
For the first time in UFC history, two undefeated Olympic medalists will square off for promotional gold, as women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey attempts to defend her 135-pound strap against challenger Sara McMann.

When I think of the end of my life, I know I'd be much more disappointed in myself for not taking the risk than I would be for having a number of near misses. I know that regrets will be much harder to swallow than off-shoots.
We are often focused on consequences right now. Thinking of how something will impact us beyond the present moment helps put the risk into perspective. Many times you will find that a setback won't matter a year from now -- or even next week. So why not take a chance?
Many people think that because I took part in an individual -- versus team -- sport, there wasn't a teamwork element. I absolutely guarantee that I wouldn't have my Olympic medal if I didn't know how to find, rely on and get help from many people around me.
Wish of a Lifetime is built on the premise that senior citizens should be respected, honored and aided in society. Its mission is to inspire an entire generation who has given a lifetime of service, wisdom, and love to their communities.
