Did you know that celebrities Amy Adams and Joel McHale were born in Italy? Italy is also home to Europe's highest peak and the world's longest land tunnel.

Can the Olympics be all the time?

Today was the last full day of competition, and what a way to go out in style. We started out with the huge news that Mexico beat Brazil in soccer and were reminded of the dangers of Racewalking.

Usain Bolt secured Jamaica a relay world record and the US ladies continued to tear up the track.

The most exciting competition of the night came on the track and in the pool with Mo Farah and the Men's Diving Competition.

All in all? A great way to end a fantastic Summer Games.

I WASN'T KIDDING WHEN I TOLD YOU GUYS RACEWALKING WAS INTENSE.

If you were fortunate enough to watch it live, this years 50km meter Racewalk was the stuff of running nightmares. People were peeing themselves. Dudes were collapsing. Racewalking proved itself to be the most effective way to ensure your inevitable demise while never bending your knees.

Sergey Kirdyapkin of Russia won gold with a time of 3:35:59.

The US gave them a run (HA!) for their money, but Jamaica proved their sprinting dominance. Usain Bolt, Jamaica's anchor (last runner in the relay) snagged his third gold medal in the London games.

It all came down to an anchor sprint between Tyson Gay and Usain Bolt. For about four seconds it they were neck and neck -- and then Bolt remembered he was the fastest man in history. He easily pulled ahead to finish Jamaica's relay with a time of 36.85 seconds.

This marks Bolt's sixth Olympic gold.

The US shot for six relay titles in a row - and boy did they get it.

The US Women had a phenominal night last night too. They smashed the 4x100m relay record with a time of 40.82, more than a half-second better than a record that had stood for 27 years.

Today's 4x400m record left Team US with the fourth fastest 4x400m relay time in history, with a final time of 3:16.88. These girls were dominant from start to finish, with Russia and Jamaica finishing in second and third.
