TRUCKEE, Calif. — For this week’s Word on the Street question, considering the 2016 Summer Olympics are ongoing in Rio de Janeiro, we asked residents and visitors: “What’s your favorite part of the Summer Olympics?”

Check out the video above for answers, as asked Wednesday outside New Moon Natural Foods and at other locations in Truckee.

If you have a question you’d like us to ask for future Word on the Street video features, or an idea for a location to shoot a future feature, email Reporter Amanda Rhoades at
