Australia’s swimming team visited Christ The Redeemer in Rio today. Intentional or not, how very fitting. There may be a sense of the cathartic up there on the angel’s shoulder overlooking the stunning setting that is Rio de Janeiro, Sugarloaf and sea; up there at the foot of the iconic statue of The Dove, arms outstretched like wings, hands open as if to say: The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit – Psalm 34:18. Let the Games of inquiry begin. A look at all of that – and the swingometer of those eight days in Rio – how the USA won the meet and how Australia lost it.
