Now Rio has a death toll. Cyclist killed in crash.

"An Iranian Para-cyclist has died after a crash during the men's C4-5 road race at the Rio Paralympics.

The International Paralympic Committee said Bahman Golbarnezhad, 48, suffered cardiac arrest after the incident on a "mountainous stretch" of circuit." :(

This Is It, Today Is The Last Day of Rio 2016.

Apart from the death of the Iranian cyclist, both the Olympics and Paralympics of Rio 2016 have been a thoroughly enjoyable experience!!! 

Muito Obrigado Rio!!!:D:D:D

From all of the social media updates (Facebook, Snapchat, Periscope, and YouTube), it appears these Paras have provided quite the atmosphere! 

It seems that the vibrancy from the Paralympics is what they wanted from the Olympic Games, largely because there are more events made available and accessible to the public.

I wasn't there, but I'm sure Zeke can fill us in.

Probably the BEST Paralympics ever.

The BIG surprise was the host city, Rio de Janeiro along with Brazil in pulling off an event that looked to be doomed a week before it started.

The moment the Opening Ceremony got underway you sort of knew these games were going to be something else.

Brilliant athletes, exciting events and respectable crowd participation along with a more relaxed atmosphere ensured the Paralympics more from a "they can do it too" sideshow into a very credible first tier multi sports event.

Thank You Brazil ^_^
