The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio: The most memorable and stunning photos
Last summer (or Winter depending on where in the world you live), we enjoyed the most recent Olympics, which took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, the greatest sporting event in the world, gave us photos that left us with our mouths gaping open, and these photos now are part of archives which commemorate recent history in modern society.
There were a number of events and Olympic moments that made our hearts pump faster than usual. We got excited, laughed and screamed with our athletes. These athletes spend their whole lives training to give it their all in this rare opportunity to win a priceless Olympic medal, and we get to see them from the comfort of our home.
This ceremony left us with way too many stories, and like the sports fans we are here at Genially, we haven’t wanted to miss out on a single moment.
Below, you’ll see some of the best photos of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, and they are, of course, interactive! Put your cursor on one of the Olympic Games icons, and learn more information about each image. We hope you like them!
Lastly, we’d like to leave you with an “extra”—a funny moment which shows a gymnast getting that extra push she needed to finish off her routine:
What would the Greeks think of today’s Olympic Games?
