Rio 2016

History was made in 2016 when Rio de Janeiro, Brazil hosted the Games of the XXXI Olympiad, marking the first time that a South American country welcomed the world to an Olympic Games. It was also just the third time that the Games were held in the southern hemisphere, following Melbourne 1956 and Sydney 2000.
