In the past 15 days, Brazil fell in love with its women’s football team.
Since the Games started on August 5, at least 14 persons have died in shootouts between so-called gang members and police and soldiers deployed in the city. That is almost one death per day.
With just two more days to go before the Games come to an end, it has definitely produced a bunch of villains who will live in infamy for a long time. Topping the charts of this dubious list is the American swimmer Ryan Lochte.
Like FIFA, the International Olympic Committee too is run like a private club, with little accountability to anyone.
Like us Indians, the Brazilians too can be very touchy about their food.
Though this Olympics features 44 LGBT athletes, a new record, they continue to face extra challenges.
On Saturday, it was widely reported in the local media that Ryan Lochte, a 12-time Olympic medallist, and three other American swimmers were robbed at gunpoint.
The Brazilian crowd has been upset with the US team as several American athletes dropped out of the Olympics because of “concerns over the virus”.
Temer has always been referred to as the “Butler of horror movies”. That name was given to him partly because of his formal bearing and partly because of the political games he is known to play.
There is more politics in Olympics than there is in real politics.
The Tibetan flag has been there on display at the stall since day one at the games.
The state government has put a police force of 85,000, including 23,000 soldiers who stand guard at busy intersections.
The city itself is named after a river. Rio means river in Portuguese; and Rio de Janeiro means January River.
The Bushes' love affair with oil has reached Rio 2016, though in a different way.
The Barcelona star has been playing all right, but has failed to convert chances into goals.
Big stars in tennis are having very bad games. Novak Djokovic was out on the first day, now Serena and Venus.
The victory of the Rafaela Silva was a symbol of change the favela has undergone in recent years.
People are protesting against the current interim government at the football stadiums.
