Happy Bear and the Olympic Games Rio 2016 experience

Happy Bear loved her visit to Itaquera Arena where we watched the contest for the bronze medal. It was a great match Brazil vs Canada. Congratulations to both teams, especially Canada for the medal.


 The stadium is connected to the tube station Corínthians Itaquera. Both stadium and tube station are a reference to Corínthians, a very popular football team in Brasil http://corinthians.com.br/home/


you can keep informed on all schedule, results, participating countries and medals at the official site. https://www.rio2016.com/en





The Olympic Games in 2016 have been planned since 2009 due to President Lula's efforts to bring competition to Rio de Janeiro.



77% of the athletes benefited from the podium program, a federal government incentive program to sports, created by President Rousseff http://www.esporte.gov.br/index.php/perfis-dos-atletas-podio
