Rio 2016 launches new-look website


To mark two years to go until the start of the 2016 Olympic Games, the Rio 2016 Organising Committee has re-launched the official Games website with a new-look design.

The exciting new design (www.rio2016.com) reflects the official ‘Look of the Games’, which has also been unveiled as part of the two-years-to-go milestone.

The official Games website now features a redesigned home page, which aims to further engage visitors with the event, as well as a new section on the host city, Rio de Janeiro, including a guide to attractions across the four Games zones and the history of the city.

Two infographics have also been added to the site, presenting key information and trivia about the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games.
