Ready for Rio? Will be you be watching and cheering on our Canadians for the Summer Games? Canada started off earlier this week with a win against Australia in women’s soccer. The opening ceremonies will be broadcast on the CBC and Officials have been tight-lipped with regards to individual performances, but there’s enough leaked information from rehearsals to get a general idea of what Friday’s festivities will entail. It won’t be the over priced ceremonies we’ve all come to expect over the last number of years. Rio, apparently, thought that saving a few bucks would be a good idea! The Rio 2016 Summer Games run from Friday, Aug. 5 to Sunday, Aug. 21. Visit globalnews.ca/rio2016 for our full Rio 2016 coverage.
