We are nearing the end of an amazing week at the 2018 USA Games. Today featured competition in all 12 of the remaining sports, with stand up paddleboarding and golf having finished their competitions earlier in the week. For a large majority of the athletes, the competitions that took place this morning and afternoon were their last for this USA Games. As Team Florida wraps up competition and heads home tomorrow, they will be bringing home a total of 133 awards, including 93 medals and 40 ribbons!
To honor the astounding performances yesterday, awards ceremonies took place most of the day. Tonight, athletes get a chance to unwind at USA Games Night at the Mariners, where they'll cheer on the Seattle baseball team as they face the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at Safeco Field.
The closing ceremony taking place tonight, set in a festival-like atmosphere, will celebrate the athletes’ achievements and give the community a chance to bid farewell to the delegations before they return to their home states. ESPN’s Kenny Mayne will emcee.
