Events with “Les Sportifs de Rio”

I created the group “Les Sportifs de Rio” in 2015 in order to prepare the French community for the 2016 Olympics. The idea was to organize various events with all the people interested in sport in Rio, to create links between them and to prepare them for the Games by distributing “Esprit Bleu” t-shirts and buying tickets together. The following is a selection of photos from these events.
