The 2016 RIO Olympics is the most awaited event this year. The 2016 RIO Olympics will be very exciting because there are other sports was added in the list of sports competitions.The athletes and coaches from different participating countries is preparing for this event.

What will be your predictions for a specific sport events in 2016 RIO Olympics? Do you think 2016 summer Olympics basketball team USA will take home gold medals? I think Klay Thompson will be the top scorer of USA team when they play in 2016 Olympics. His team mates (United States men’s basketball team for 2016 summer olympics roster) are Jimmy Butler (guard) Kevin Durant (forward), DeAndre Jordan (center), Kyle Lowry (g), Harrison Barnes (f), DeMar DeRozan (g), Kyle Irbing (g), DeMarcus Cousins (c), Paul George (f), Draymond Green (f), Carmelo Anthony (f).

In other sports like Football, the country with great player like Cristiano Ronaldo has an advantage. According to IBTimes.co.in, “Renato Sanches and Cristiano Ronaldo will not be seen in the Rio Olympics 2016”. Not good to hear that. I will not watch football game in Olympics 2016.
