Thirty-two medals was the final count for the U.S. team in Rio for track & field. The absolute best performance since 1932 for the U.S. in an Olympics. This was my ninth Olympics writing about the sport we love, and Rio was, an amazing testament to the pride of the Brazilian people. It was also a question that needs to be answered--what is the IOC doing? We will leave that question for another day, but for now, enjoy Moments with Larry podcast, my review of day six of track & field. Special thanks to Brian Eder, for the company and filming. Special thanks to The Shoe Addicts, who produce and manage our video assets.

Remember, deadline for early application is 11/29/16 at 2 P.M.

This is the day 5 podcast for Olympic Moments with Larry. On Day 5, we covered the highlights of that fine day of Olympic Track & Field. The podcast was filmed in Engenhao, at the apartment where I was staying for the Olympics. We were across from the Olympic Stadium and railroad station.

I hope you enjoy these podcasts. They were fun to make and great memories of the Rio Olympics. Special thanks to Brian Eder for the filming and company and The Shoe Addicts on producing the podcast.

Olympic Moments with Larry has been one of my favorite projects. It was shot in Engenhao, a suburb of Rio, where the train station and Olympic stadium are located. We filmed the highlight videos (one done for each day) during the ten days of Rio Olympic Track & Field.

This podcast was for day four. Special thanks to Brian Eder for filming the videos and The Shoe Addicts for producing the video series. Video is just below the photo.

This is part three of Moments with Larry, our review of day three of the 2016 Rio Olympic Track & Field championships. This series of Olympic moments was filmed in Engenhao, from our apartment for the 2016 Rio Olympics, by Brian Eder. The video series was produced by The Shoe Addicts.

This is part of the Moments of Larry from the Rio 2016 Olympics. We did a highlight video from each day of the Rio track and field Olympics. This is my video on Day two, the best moments, from my opinion. We filmed the video at our apartment in Engenhao, just across from the stadium. Special thanks to Brian Eder for the filming and company and The Shoe Addicts for producing the video.

The series Olympic Moments with Larry was one of the most fun projects that I have done. My brother, Brian and I filmed them in Rio, at our little apartment across from the Engenhao Olympic Stadium. We reviewed each day and the importance of the Rio Olympics. This is a podcast series, so you can download and enjoy on your phone while you are running or walking. Let us know what you think about this series! Thanks to Brian, who continues to amaze me, and our team at The Shoe Addicts (Algeron Felice, Mike Deering and Adam Eder), who continue to inspire me.
