Much attention has traditionally been paid to the logo of
the Olympics 2016. It shows the merging of mountains,
sun and sea in a graceful and sinuous line of dancing
men. The color scheme has been selected on the basis of
the national colors of Brazil: the symbol is in the blue,
yellow and green colors. It is worth noting that the
choice was not easy. For the attention of judges was
represented by about 150 options . Also, special attention
was focused on the Olympic mascots. Traditionally, the
names chosen for their local residents who expressed
their will by voting online. As a result, mascots have
been named Vinicius and Tom. They got their names

At the moment, the Russian national team in
various sports won 213 Olympic licenses for the
2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro and another 85
licenses claims in those sports in which license
holders are determined by the respective ratings
of the Olympic International Sports Federations.
This license allows the number of the Russian
national team at this time to take part in the

I will support our team in all kinds of sports, but
the more attention I will pay to gymnastics and
swimming. In my opinion there is could be won
the largest number of medals.
