Olympics in Rio de Janeiro

Olympics starts tomorrow in Rio de Janeiro

After 8 years of preparation Rio de Janeiro is ready for the Olympics. I have visited all the venues during the past week and I can say that they are all ready for the begining of the games.

Below there are 2 pictures showing the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas venue.

Most of the games will be held at the Barra Arena in Rio de Janeiro as you can see below. And the Carioca Arena is the biggest one.

50.000 volunteers will be helping during the games. 20% of them come from oversears – from 150 different countries.

Let’s hope that the olympics in Rio de Janeiro turns out to be a great success!
