Fun Facts About The Last Olympics:
Rio 2016 was the first time in Olympic history that a South American country has hosted the Games. The city won its bid in 2009, beating out Chicago, Madrid and Tokyo.
The torch relay began on April 21 in the Games’ birthplace — Olympia in Greece — before traveling across Brazil for more than 90 days and finishing in Rio on August 5. While in Greece, it passed through the Eloenas refugee camp, near Athens, where a resident was selected to be a torch bearer.
The opening and closing ceremonies were held in Rio’s Maracanã Stadium, which boasts the world record for the most fans ever to attend a soccer game. Although its current capacity is around 78,000, the stadium squeezed in at least 173,000 fans during the 1950 World Cup final. Maracanã hosted the World Cup final again in 2014.
