RIO 2016: WFLA Paul Ryan in Rio, Day 7

RIO DE JANEIRO (WFLA) — News Channel 8’s Paul Ryan is in Rio de Janeiro for the Olympics. He wants to show you what it’s like there. He’ll be snapping photos and shooting video of the people he meets and the places he visits.

On Sunday, Paul is excited to see the US volleyball teams in action and of course, the event everybody has been waiting for – the women’s gymnastics.

In the meantime, Paul works hard at the media center’s NBC wing, updating our viewers live on News Channel 8, and navigates the Olympic park, trying not to fall into dangerous manholes.

He also met two Tampa Spartans at the Olympics – Jordan Augier and Jamie Peterkin. His interview with Jordan Augier is coming up soon.


This is cool! Earlier this week, Paul visited some famous locations in Rio including the Christ the Redeemer statue. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
