Checking in again from Rio de Janeiro! Where were we…
Two nights ago, our IRP group enjoyed a wonderful GW alumni reception on the roof deck of our hotel. Many alumni were in attendance, including some who we had previously met with in meetings the day before, so it was great to meet and mingle with fellow Colonials. Yesterday, we actually got to visit some of the venues that Rio2016 plans to use for some of the events, including the aquatics training facility, cycling, and basketball, and the Director of Venue Operations walked us through Rio’s long-term construction plan.
Instead of writing about the different venues we visited, though, I thought it would be best to simply show you through some of the best photos I took from the past two day’s events. Also see the video, which shows Rio2016′s plans as they work toward laying the groundwork for Olympic venue and infrastructure configuration.
