12 signs you are obsessed with the 2016 Summer Olympic Games


The 2016 Rio Olympic Games are in full swing, meaning endless sports coverage of the world’s best athletes — and you don’t want to miss a minute of the action.

You live for the Olympics. And when the final day of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games come to a close on Aug. 21, you will have a hard time transitioning back into real life where, once again, there will be nothing to watch on TV. Here are 12 signs you’ve earned a gold medal in Olympic fandom:

1. You cried when the music video for the Olympic games theme song came out.

And then, of course, immediately purchased the song.

2. You downloaded all the apps you could find.

Ironman - need it

And thrive on the push notifications you receive all day long.

3. You aren’t even mad when the commercials come on.


Because they feature Olympians, of course.

4. You curse the internet whenever you accidentally see a spoiler on social media in the middle of the day.
