As we think about the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, let's take a look back at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.
A portion of the 1996 Olympics were held in Tennessee. The whitewater rating contest was held along the Ocoee River - although not right here. This is the spot where most people do their Ocoee rafting. (I last did this when I was in High School in 1994.) The Olympic competition area is actually upstream from here and has been turned into a modern park. If you are travelling along US64, it's a little further East of this area.
