The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro are underway, with much of the focus during this first week of competition on swimming and gymnastics. Two local athletes are among those competing for Gold.
Justin Gatlin, a graduate of Pensacola’s Woodham High School, is back in Track & Field. And, Bubba Watson, a Milton High grad, is making his Olympic debut.
Watson will represent the U.S. Men’s Golf Team, along with Ricky Fowler, Matt Kuchar, and Patrick Reed.
