What makes the Rio 2016 Games different

“The difference will be the audience. When compared to other editions, the structure will be the same, but I think the crowd will make a difference to Brazilian and other country’s athletes.” Bernardo Rezende

I am honoured to see the Brazilian flag and hear the Brazilian national anthem when I am on the podium. I am a restrained person, but it doesn’t mean I don’t feel a thing. I am happy to be up there. Listening to the anthem is very nice, it moves us.
