So next year brings another big sporting event, that being the Rio 2016 Olympics! I've been really excited to watch the games and see some seriously good sport being produced by excellent athletes :awesome:

Obviously Brazil are aiming to get some medals including in things such as football and volleyball :yep: So what are you most excited about related to the games next year? Anything you want to see Brazil do in particular?

If I'm honest, absolutely nothing. Nobody has parties in the street when their country wins a gold medal.

Looking forward to the opening and closing ceremonies, there will be a fantastic display of colour.

I watched the London 2012 Olympics closely, so may be doing the same for Brazil. :ahee:

I love the Olympics, so yes, I'm definitely excited! Rio de Janeiro looks like a stunning location.

All the aquatic sports are rather enjoyable I must say. :mmm:

I will probably have crazy study night sessions (and uni application stuff, like PS for Oxford) while watching Olympics...because of the time difference. I hope that I will be productive (study wise) and that I will enjoy every bit of the Olympics.

I am especially looking forward to Athletics, Swimming, Handball, Gymnastics and Water polo.

There are several things that excite me,such as:
Will Usain Bolt be able to push the limit on that 200 m, since I think that he is too old for a WR at 100m?

Awesome! Although I do jiu jitsu, my style has some judo elements so it's fun to watch

I will miss the crucial part of the Olympics since I am going to a summer school from 16th to 22nd of August. I guess that I'll stay awake there all the night and then I am going to come like a zombie on lectures.
