I know some Olympics fans are still sad about the international competition being over, but they should cheer up because there is another one going on.
The main difference between this competition and the Olympics is that this one doesn't involve humans.
Twenty six teams of robotics experts have come together in Bristol, England, to see what their robots are made of in the Federation of International Robotics Association (FIRA) RoboWorld Cup, an annual event now in its 16th year.
Soccer is the main sport, but the robots also compete in sprinting, basketball and weight lifting, according to SkyNews.
Although the robots are moving around, engaged in the sports, people still play a key role.
"Just like human athletes spend a lifetime preparing for an event that may last a few moments at most, so too do the scientists put their blood, sweat and gears into their robot racers", according to Peter Gibbons from Plymouth University.
Some teams build their robots entirely from the start, while others buy them from stores and modify them for competition.
