The Olympics come every two years, with the summer Olympics occurring every four. With that in mind, today is a big day- the opening ceremony of Rio de Janeiro Olympics 2016. When you first hear of the word Olympics, several things come to my mind: culture, competition, the torch, specific competitors, and the excitement of the new sports. This year they added a 7 person rugby team and golf to the mix of the competition. There are a total of 11,000 athlete attendees who will fight for a total of 306 medals. Whether you’re an athlete, amazed by their talent, or looking for some entertainment the Olympics are where it is at. It only last two weeks, so cheer on team US. Get your Olympic flags today.
