Morghans Olympic Experience

For some Olympians, the Games are over shortly after they begin. That was the case for Team USA's Morghan King. 

The Games opened with a big party at Maracanã Stadium on August 5th. King kicked off the weightlifting competition one day later at Riocentro.

While her competition was over, the Olympic experience for the first-time Olympian was only getting started. 

King, 30, got engaged, visited Copacabana beach and even tried her hand at the old Olympic sport of Tug of War on NBC's TODAY Show.

She also went to Riocentro to cheer on her Team USA teammates. 

Check out Morghan's Rio experience below-- through her eyes.
