It’s the largest and most anticipated sporting event on the planet, a true celebration of world-class talent and dedication from athletes spanning the globe.
This year, the Olympics will be held by the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil between 5-21 August. With a record number of countries competing in this year’s Games, over 10,000 athletes are battling for a medal in the 28 Olympic sports that will take place over the course of the event. First-time entrants include Kosovo and South Sudan, with Rio being the first South American city to ever host the Olympic Games. In fact, continuing on the theme of firsts, the Rio Summer Olympic Games are actually the first to be held entirely during a Winter season!
The Rio Games have been shrouded in controversy thus far, so much so that celebrations surrounding the lead-up to the Olympics have been marred by negative reports emerging from the country. It is hoped that the success of hosting the Olympics and the resulting legacy will “present opportunity to deliver the broader aspirations for the long-term future of the city, region and country – a chance to hasten the transformation of Rio de Janeiro into an even greater global city.”
