Rio 2016: 30 more print infographics

The second installment of our print infographics selection about the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro

September 7, 2016

In a few moments, more than 4,300 athletes at the 2016 Paralympics will take part in the opening parade through the Maracanã, two weeks after the ending of the 2016 Summer Olympics. And similarly to what happened then, the colorful opening ceremony is set to take all the attentions away of the event’s shortfall in funding and the political chaos the country is facing -ate least for about three hours.

Despite all these issues, the expectation surrounding the performance of these Olympic heroes is as high as ever. Among the global stars in Rio are Brazilian swimmer Daniel Dias, 28-year-old German jumper Markus “Blade Jumper” Rehm, American swimmer Elizabeth Marks, Australia’s Olympic and Paralympic table tennis player Melissa Tapper and the Netherlands’ ‘Blade Babe’ Marlou van Rhijn, among others.

We wish all the competitors, volunteers and organizing committe the best of lucks, and we take this opportunity to share with you the second installment for our selection of print infographics about Rio 2016 (see the first here), with 30-plus examples published around the world.

Opening, here are the latest Olympic infographics from our gallery:
