This will allow guests and participants of all nationalities and languages to immediately identify the sport taking place.

Rio 2016 President, Carlos Nuzman:

For the first time, all Olympic and Paralympic sports are individually represented. This is one of our unique contributions to the history of the Games. I congratulate the creative team for their dedication and hard work together with diverse groups who contributed to this launch.
