Olympic Games - Rio 2016

Cyprus
"Olympism seeks to create a way of life based on the joy found in effort, the educational value of a good example and respect for universal fundamental ethical principles."
Baron Pierre de Coubertin

Cyprus is once again taking part in the greatest sporting event on the planet. Four years after the triumph of the Cyprus team in London and the achievement of winning our first Olympic medal in modern history, our Olympic team is preparing for the 31st Olympic Games in Rio, Brazil, from 5-21 August, 2016.

The goals are still high. We have confidence in the talent and in the efforts of our athletes to show that they are more than ready for the great sporting festival of the summer and to give us once again the opportunity to feel proud.
