Rio 2016 Olympics – Rio 2016 Olympics started with a great event. It was full of emotions and entertainment. Also in this edition, we can see a lot of sports. Famous and almost famous. Today, we call them “minors”. However, they have millions of fans.
Rio 2016 Olympics start to a great night. It opened at the Maracana, the most famous stadium in Brazil. The opening ceremony had less high-tech than the last show. London 2012. However, it had more passion and energy. The last surprise was Vanderlei Cordeiro de Lima. He was the last torch-bearer. So, Brazil compensated its champion after Athens 2004. An Irish priest assailed the Brazilian runner. He was leading the marathon. Then, he finished only third.
Rio 2016 Olympics: Why not Motorsport?
Many new sports arrive in Rio. So, we have a question. Why not promote MotoGP and F1? Two Motorsport with important players. We want to see a new battle between Rossi and Marquez. Maybe between Ferrari and Mercedes. Why not? The International Olympic Committee decided to add 5 new disciplines at Tokyo 2020. It had unanimously approved the introduction of skateboarding and surfing. Sport climbing and karate. Finally, Baseball (softball for women) for the Japanese Edition. There are new rules. The Olympics local organizers can propose one new sport for each game. New disciplines will not have place for the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. But, in Japan we will see 18.474 athletes.
Rossi launched the proposal. “Motorcycles in the Olympics? We can do it.” said the Italian champion. But the proposal was not carried out.
However, now MotoGP and Formula 1 fans talk about the “crazy” proposal. Today, it is difficult to realize. However, for the future, it could represent a good opportunity for sport. Rio 2016 starts. Nothing is missing. Or almost.
We think that all sports must go to the Olympics games. Because all fans must have the opportunity. Enjoy their passion.
