The Olympics in Brazil are under way. More than 11,000 athletes from 206 National Olympic Committees have gathered for the games. A righteous celebration like no other. Here in the UK, nothing seems to engage the national psyche quite like it. You know the Olympics are here when that guy in the office, who didn’t know what a ‘peloton’ was last week, gives you a detailed deconstruction of the technicalities behind team drafting and race tactics.
With 306 sets of medals, the games feature 28 Olympic sports, including rugby sevens and golf for the first time. All events are taking place at 33 venues in the host city as well as five venues in the cities of São Paulo (Brazil’s largest city), Belo Horizonte, Salvador, Brasília, and Manaus. But the real question at Revolution is: who is taking gold when it comes to the watch game!
First up is Canadian tennis sensation Eugenie Bouchard. Eugenie’s already defeated American Sloane Stephens 6-3, 6-3 in round one. Here is Eugenie with her watch of choice, the Rolex Daytona.
