What the Olympics means for the people of Rio A year before the opening ceremony of the 2016 Olympics, Rio de Janeiro is a city in motion, rehearsing, training, driving, sweeping, protesting, calculating and preparing for arguably the biggest event in its history. At the Olympic Park in Barra da Tijuca, a small forest of cranes swings back and forth over the velodrome and gymnasium even as the last few hold-outs in a nearby favela resist police attempts to forcibly remove them. On the banks of the Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon, labourers bolt together seating for rowing spectators as frustrated commuters nearby sit in endless traffic jams and wonder how the roads will cope with the influx of visitors. There is work on the waters of Guanabara Bay, on subway expansion under the luxury condominiums of Leblon, in city halls and police meeting rooms. It is all geared to providing answers to the two key questions facing any Games: “Will it be ready on time?”

Krasnaya Polyana, Krasnodar Krai Krasnaya Polyana (Russian: Кра́сная Поля́на) is the name of several inhabited localities in Russia: Amur Oblast[edit] As of 2010, one rural locality in Amur Oblast bears this name: Ancient Olympic Games, First Olympics in Olympia According to historical records, the first ancient Olympic Games can be traced back to 776 BC.

Rio 2016: #100daystogo With 100 days until the Games begin, Brazil is unraveling fast -- largely overshadowing the impending arrival of sport's greatest showpiece. Who needs the staple pre-Olympic media diet of venue delays and security fears when you have a leader facing impeachment, a gigantic corruption scandal and a global public health emergency? As the clock ticks, it is impossible to know who will occupy the seat reserved for the Brazilian president at the August 5 opening ceremony. The incumbent, Dilma Rousseff, is alleged to have manipulated her government's economic figures prior to 2014's election. She says the consequent impeachment proceedings against her are a "coup" she will fight to the last. Leading her opponents is Eduardo Cunha, speaker of Brazil's lower house.

Here’s a daily look at potentially intriguing events (all times Eastern): Friday, Aug. 5 — Opening Ceremony The Olympics will open at the famed Maracanã, though preliminary soccer matches will be played the preceding two days, as has been the case since 2000. The Opening Ceremony will be highlighted by the Parade of Nations and cauldron lighting, the final torch bearer always a closely guarded secret. (Of note, the final torch bearer has actually been multiple people at the last three Olympics, so it will be interesting to see if Rio ends that streak.)
