Under the aegis of the Rio 2016 organising committee, Olympians are ensuring that no detail is left to chance in the preparations for this summer’s Games.
Athletes are at the heart of our planning” is a commonly repeated mantra in
Olympic Games organisation. So, when preparing to deliver the biggest sporting event on the planet, it helps to have a few ex-athletes on your team. Rio 2016 has recruited an entire battalion of Olympians, who are helping to ensure that when Usain Bolt and co arrive in Brazil, their only concern will be reaching peak performance.
One of the in-house experts is Giovane Gávio, a two-time Olympic champion with the Brazilian volleyball team (Barcelona 1992 and Athens 2004) who is now in charge of preparations for the volleyball competition at Rio 2016. His knowledge of what it is like to compete at the highest level is proving crucial.
