It is less than 24 hours to the beginning of the 2016 Summer Olympics! Will you be watching?
The Olympics are a couch potatoes answer to getting outside and doing their own exercise. After all who wants to miss any of the details of the sports that are being covered for the next 10 days?
The Summer Olympics are just what they say they are, you will not find one snowflake or one ice surface (unless it’s in a CaiPerinho, the official drink of my Brazil), there will be no ice dance, hockey, luge or cross country skiing. What you will see is lots of water, sand, surf and more. I know my other half is anxiously awaiting the start of these games, he will be watching intently I’m sure.
Summer Olympics cover sports that are done on land and sea, with lots of swimming, diving, sailing, canoeing any sport that has to do with water and I’m sure that the Bathing suits will also be a prominent sight seeing event as well, but I digress.
Besides the water sports, there will also be sports like Wrestling, Judo, Fencing, Badminton, Volleyball and more.
There will be at least 41 different categories of sports covered in these Olympic Games. They will move through the alphabet from A to W…..sorry there are no sports starting with “XYZ”.
You will see everything from Archery to Wrestling and everything in between. There are 41 different categories and many of those categories are subdivided again. So the total number of sports included depends on who you ask and how they have divided up the categories. Let’s just say that there is something there for everyone.
I know that I will be watching with extra pride, even though I haven’t lived in Brazil in a long, long time, I was born there and I know the people to be friendly, engaging and warm. There are many beautiful sights to be seen in Rio and the beach is just one of them.
With the venues of the Olympics being spread out over four different areas, I hope that the world gets a glimpse at the beauty that is in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I hope they also take the time to see other parts of Brazil too. It is a big country with a host of beauty all around.
Rio de Janeiro, truly is a World Class City, Will you Be Watching????
