Despite the rainy weather, crowds still turned out in Tallinn's Town Hall square to greet Estonia's Olympic delegation to the 2016 Rio Games at a reception organized by the Estonian Olympic Committee (EOK). Other previous Olympians and medal-winners could be seen among the crowd, and this year's athletes had the opportunity to sign autographs for fans.

Participants in the reception, which began at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, included the Rio Games' bronze-winning quadruple sculls team, other members of the Estonian Olympic delegation to Rio, delegation trainers as well as support personnel, Estonian Olympic Committee Chairman Urmas Sõõrumaa and Estonian Minister of Culture Indrek Saar.

A total of 47 Estonian athletes in 13 events competed in the 2016 Summer Games in Rio, which drew to a close on Sunday night. The Estonian delegation's top achievement remained the quadruple sculls rowing team's bronze medal, earned by Kaspar Taimsoo, Allar Raja, Tõnu Endrekson and Andrei Jämsä, who, together with trainer Matti Killing, were recognized for their achievement with special traditional wreaths of oak leaves.
