2016 Summer Olympics

I reported on my impressions of the Olympic capital Rio de Janeiro from 11 to 19 August.

My main focus was on appointments and meetings in connection with Düsseldorf, and my talks with national and international sport officials.

Together with the Stockheim corporate group that supports the “Stockheim Team Rio” with eight Olympics athletes such as table tennis star Timo Bell and hockey ace Selina Oruz, alongside managing director Karl-Heinz Stockheim, I supported the Düsseldorf team on the ground, and watched the competitions in Rio.

I took a look behind the scenes at the “Deutsches Haus”, the pivotal communications point for the German Olympic athletes and guests from business and politics, and got to meet Düsseldorfers and NRW delegations.

I lived and worked in Brazil for some time myself, and was greatly looking forward to returning to this sport-mad country of 200 million inhabitants.

Reports from Rio can be read on Facebook or my blog Christina-do-Rio.de.
