Next stop: Rio 2016
To mark two years to go until the Opening Ceremony of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, the Organising Committee has unveiled the official ‘Look of the Games’ which will be used for all the event’s visual communications.
The new visual identity, which celebrates the vibrancy of the host city, has been inspired by the rich landscapes of Rio and includes illustrations depicting the city’s best-loved icons, including Sugarloaf Mountain and Corcovado. It aims to be a source of inspiration, bringing people and cultures together at the Games, and will be on display in all the sporting venues and across the city during Rio 2016, as well as on tickets, uniforms and licensed products. The goal is to create a celebratory atmosphere and a unique experience for all visitors.
The 2016 Summer Olympic programme features 28 sports and a total of 41 disciplines and 306 events. There were two open spots for sports and initially seven sports began the bidding for inclusion in the 2016 program. Baseball and softball, which were dropped from the program in 2005, karate, squash, golf, roller sports, and rugby union all applied to be included. Leaders of the seven sports held presentations in front of the IOC executive board in June 2009. Finally he rugby seven, a seven-man version of rugby union, and golf received an approbation from the board.
Although there some doubts about the organization, in Brasil the olimpic comittee is working hard to finish competition venues and associated infrastructure.
For those who are thinking to be part of the this big sports party and want to be in Rio at that time maybe they should start thinking about booking hotels or any other accommodations and flights or look for forex brokers to exchange currencies. We know there are 2 years left but the earlier you start the cheapest you pay.
