To mark the Games of the XXXI Olympiad, The Olympic Museum will be dressed, for six months, in the colours of Rio and living to a Brazilian rhythm. Exhibitions and events will showcase the diversity, exuberance and energy of Brazilian culture. The programme will kick off during the Rio Carnival and culminate with the two weeks of the Games in the summer.
Olympic Park, a jog on Copacabana beach?
Just like a stroll beside the ocean, the route is interspersed with kiosks offering information on Brazil. Artist Felipe Barbosa’s strange little creatures provide a touch of colour and fun, combined with photos of some of Brazil’s greatest athletes: an ideal setting for a warm-up!
