This summer, the eyes of the world are on Rio de Janeiro. But once, not so long ago, the world’s attention was focused solely on Georgia. Watch as two of Augusta University’s athletic trainers recount their experiences from the sidelines of the 1996 Summer Olympics – one of Georgia’s proudest, and most tragic, moments on the world stage.
Be sure to visit the Olympics page for our latest Olympic-related coverage, including reports from our two correspondents, Arthur Takahashi and Brennan Meagher, who will be on the ground in Rio from August 15 – 22.
