Rio Ready 2016

Are you ready for the Olympics? For those of us watching from our couches, it’ll be an exciting time. For those pro swimmers travelling to Rio, it will be the dream of a lifetime. Top athletes from around the globe are counting down the last few weeks until they can turn those dreams into a reality.

The Rio Olympic Games 2016 begin on Friday, 5 August and conclude on Sunday, 21 August. The indoor swimming events will feature 900 swimmers taking to the waters of the Olympic Aquatics Stadium while another 50 swimmers will hit the open waters of Fort Copacabana.

Brazil’s second largest city is in the midst of mad preparation for the world to descend upon their tropical oasis. The first stop for Olympic athletes will be Barra da Tijuca, a newly constructed neighbourhood in Rio that will host the Olympic and Paralympic Village. When they aren’t competing or training, the world’s greatest swimmers will stay in one of seven compounds alongside a total of 3,604 first-class athletes.

Once it is time to hit the water, the Rio 2016 Olympic swimmers will head over to the Olympic Aquatics Stadium which just opened in April. The venue has a capacity of 18,000 spectators and big names like Chad le Clos, Missy Franklin and Michael Phelps are sure to fill up the seats. The Olympic Aquatics Stadium has a training pool and an event pool which will host the swimming, synchronized swimming and water polo events.

The men and women of the Olympic swimming teams will participate in a total of 16 events, including relays and individual competitions in four strokes: freestyle, breaststroke, butterfly and backstroke.

According to FINA standards, the Olympic swimming pool at the Olympic Aquatics Stadium will maintain a consistent temperature between 25 to 28 degrees C. And the weather outside of the stadium will be amazing!

Thanks to Rio de Janeiro’s location between the Atlantic Ocean as well as the Guanabara and Sepetiba Bays, the weather in the city can change quickly in terms of rain and wind but it consistently stays quite lovely during August.

Olympic athletes and fans can expect average midday temperatures around 24°C while the average day temperature will range between a low of 18.9 °C and a high of 28.1 °C with humidity levels typically around 66.4%. You couldn’t ask for much better weather than that!

One of the best spots during the entire 2016 Rio Olympic Games will surely be the Copacabana zone, where the open-water marathon will be held. Swimmers and fans there will enjoy the gorgeous weather with a backdrop of one of South America’s most beautiful sites. Loved by the entire world for decades now, the Copacabana zone is sure to make everyone fall head over heels for Brazil during this year’s games.

So, future Olympic swimmers, which events are you most looking forward to in the Rio Olympic Games 2016?
