2016 Olympic Games Represent Brazil's Emergence as a World Leader

The 2016 Summer Olympics will be held in Rio de Janeiro, making Brazil the first South American country to win the bid for the Olympic Games and the second in Latin America, after Mexico City in 1968. For Brazil, this represents an entrance into the international community as a true economic powerhouse. While Sao Paulo is Brazil’s main economic center, Rio de Janeiro represents the culture and beauty of what is Brazil. Rio is a beautiful city that affords its visitors magnificent landscapes and a nightlife that simply glows with energy and lights.

The Olympics are the World’s largest and arguably the most important sporting event. This event has led to Rio receiving a major facelift in anticipation of the millions of guests the city will receive. The city will receive about 10,800 athletes alone, so one could imagine the influx of people and business activity that the Games will attract.

The Rio 2016 Olympic Games’ Logo was designed to represent harmonious diversity, contagious energy, passion and transformation, the Olympic spirit and exuberant nature. It is a symbol that displays the key characteristics that Rio de Janeiro represents. It exemplifies the rich culture, the status quo and the transformation that is occurring today in Rio and the rest of Brazilian society.
