Sport24 today reported that 2016 Olympic Games hosts Rio De Janeiro will unveil their Olympic Logo during celebrations to usher in the 2011 New Year.
Organisers of the Rio 2016 Olympics will unveil the event’s logo at a New Year’s party on its world famous Copacabana beach on Friday.
Two million people are expected to attend the beach party, organisers said on Tuesday. Jacques Rogge, president of the International Olympic Committee, will be the guest of honour.
The logo is to be shown on a giant screen and displayed on three flags on the beach at 22:00. The unveiling will be followed by a fireworks display to welcome 2011.
A total of 139 firms presented bids for the logo of the first Olympics ever to be held in South America. Eight were chosen as finalists, but the winner and the design remain a secret until Friday.
