Images | Olympic course walk at day one in Rio

Monday, 15 August 2016
The Olympic Games Rio 2016

The Brazilians were super stars on day one in front of an ecstatic home crowd: Here Doda de Miranda, Eduardo Menezes and Stephan de Freitas Barcha walking the course. All photos (c) Jenny Abrahamsson.

The shocking news on the morning of day one was that Cornado NRW was injured, and was unable to compete on the German team so with a very short notice Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum had to step in.
