Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – There’s a new sport to be played in Rio this summer, but will it be the world cup or the Olympics?
In a sport known for its intensity, the Rio Olympics will have its fair share of adrenaline-filled games that can be played at a frenetic pace and without breaks.
While the games have been played under tight security in a bid to make them as safe as possible, the event itself has a lot to be excited about.
The first major sporting event of the summer is a two-week event that will be played on a huge, beautiful stage that’s set up for the Games and will host the men’s and women’s soccer and men’s golf.
