The Summer Olympics will kick-start on August 5, 2016 in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro. The 17-day sporting extravaganza would conclude on August 21. The opening ceremony of the mega sporting event will take place at the Maracana stadium. An estimated 10,500 athletes from 206 countries will compete in Summer Olympics 2016. South Sudan and Kosovo would be participating in the event for the first time. During the 17 days of the event, there will be 306 medal events. Golf will make a comeback at the event after 112 years and Rugby will be included for the first time in 92 years in the form of sevens.

The Olympic Games will showcase 42 sports, which would be held in 33 venues spread across the four regions of Rio. These regions include Barra (southwest), Deodoro (northwest), Maracana (northeast) and Copacabana (southeast). 

Within a fortnight of the conclusion of the Summer Olympics, the Rio will host the 2016 Paralympic Games (7-18 Sep). In the wake of the Zika virus scare in Brazil, the 2016 Olympics organizers are taking steps to protect athletes and visitors at the Summer Games.
