Rio 2016 is not an event with protests against the interim president Michel Temer, only. Rio 2016 is an event with art and sport celebration too :)

Rio’s Olympic Boulevard unveils massive mural celebrating indigenous cultures

One of the most impressive works in our recent spotlight on Rio de Janeiro’s vibrant street art scene is a brand new masterpiece by Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra, who just transformed a whopping 190-meter-long (that’s over 600 feet) wall in Rio’s renovated port district into a celebration of the world’s indigenous cultures. Measuring almost 3,000-square-meters in size, "Ethnicities," (or Etnias, in Portuguese) hopes to secure a Guinness World Record for the largest mural from a single artist. The mural features five colorfully abstracted faces, each representing an indigenous population hailing from the five world continents depicted in the Olympic rings.

Copacabana is not just a incredible place for beach volleybal but it's the birth of the professional beach volleyball. Of course the americans will claim that they are the inventors but was in Copacabana in the 80's that the sport left the status of recreation to receive the big tournaments. If this is a olympic sport today is because the big international tournaments that was hosted here. Beach soccer will be the next.
