25 July 2016
In just a few days' time, sports fans all over the world will be uniting in their love of athletic achievement - when the 2016 Summer Olympics hits Rio de Janeiro on 5 August!
Officially known as "the Games of the XXXI Olympiad", Rio 2016 will be bringing together over 10,500 athletes from 206 National Olympic Committees, including first-time participants Kosovo and South Sudan.
It's a celebration of sporting spectacle like no other, and it's set to mesmerise the globe over every one of its 16 days.
From archery to wrestling and everything in between, including rugby sevens and golf, added as recently as 2009, the 28 sports of the games are guaranteed to captivate audiences from beginning to end, with records being broken and history being made at every moment.
Taking place in South America for the very first time, this year's Olympic Games are guaranteed to feature extra flair and festiveness, held as they are in the carnival capital of the world, Rio de Janeiro.
With over 33 venues earmarked for Olympic sporting events in Rio and 5 throughout Brazil, the entire country is waiting to welcome the world to its shores - and the world is waiting for a spectacle like no other!
Despite moving away from more traditional locations in the USA and Europe, the Summer Games are as hugely popular as ever, with more than 100,000 tickets selling out in just four-and-a-half hours.
While football, beach volleyball, basketball, tennis and athletics remain crowd favourites, tickets for all Olympic sports are selling fast, and the arenas and stadiums around Rio are on track to being filled to capacity.
Those that are lucky enough to have a front row seat to the live action will be treated to some of the most superb athletic prowess the world has to offer, with each country's finest sportsmen and women facing off against themselves and each other in an effort to bring home the gold.
And not just any gold, silver or bronze either - as this year, the 5,310 medals crafted specially for Rio 2016 have been created from the finest recycled or sustainable precious metals, rewarding not only the athletes but the environment as well.
By all accounts Rio 2016 looks to be a singular event, one that no self-respecting sports fan would want to miss out on.
