120 Reasons to Be Excited for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio [PHOTOS]
OK, so I’m admittedly a little over this year’s Olympics but there’s definitely a lot to look forward to in 2016. As the closing ceremonies ended, the torch was passed onto Rio de Janiero, the upcoming host of the next Summer games. 2016 will mark the first time that a South American country has hosted the Olympics and it’s fair to say that the city (and country) will pull out all the stops.

Hmm… tightly bundled American women or bikini-rocking Brazilians. The choice seems obvious to me.
