Mark the beginning of 2016 Summer Olympics
With 12000 athletes ready to thrill the place
Including Kosovo &South Sudan in 206 specifics
With game of golf and rugby seven also in the chase.
A 15-day event officially opened by Michael Temer
And Robert Scheidt taking the athlete’s oath
The world is currently under the Olympiad fever,
And the USA taking the maximum medals of gold.
Many are making history this time in their game,
Rugby gave the Fiji men their first ever-Olympic gold
While Michael Phelps’s has the 23rd in his name
And the Indian women’s hockey team has got a chance
After 36 years of hold.
Almaz Ayana sets a new world record in 10,000 meters race
And 44 LGBT athletes will have a golden chance to participate.
Not to forget the refugees team who have made their place,
With a desire of writing victory and recognition in their fate.
But Rio Olympics is not only about the games and the medals,
There is much more spice associated with it,
Ranging from political instability, Zika virus to doping scandals
Recession and other factors forced many athletes to quit.
Yet Rio has provided an ultimate fun to the athletes,
From Usain Bolt trying his moves in samba,
And many taking the “Pokémon Go” game to the streets
To a huge opening ceremony at the stadium of Maracanã
The Olympiad still has many days before its end,
For all to enjoy the games and celebrate the city,
And to fulfill the hopes which still depend
On the athletes and the International Olympic Committee.
