Summer Olympics: Rio 2016

The games of the XXXI Olympiad were awarded to Rio in 2009, which will be the first South American city to ever host the summer games. The Olympic games kick off today and will run until 21 August. 306 gold medals will be given to athletes competing in more than 40 events.
