Of the 500 athletes competing in Rio, a good portion of them are from Texas. They're from Houston, Dallas, Texarkana, and College Station, and they're spread out across many of the most popular events.
The United States dominated a new Olympic sport, and the host nation of Russia claimed its first gold of the Sochi Games during the first weekend of competition. Here's a recap of this weekend's action:
