From Canada’s Olympic Stadium, the Olympic Park to the streets of Rio de Janeiro, the Olympics have come to represent the global spirit of the Olympics.
It is the ideal place to be, but not everyone can be there.
As the games enter their final week of the Games, the CBC is asking athletes to share what they can share in their home countries to help make it as inclusive as possible for everyone.
In this exclusive feature, CBC News spoke with six athletes from Brazil, and one from the United States.
They shared how the games have changed them and their lives, how they’re enjoying the atmosphere, and what they’re most excited about in the final weeks.
Gaby Dias, Rio 2016: My dream is to play in the Olympics, but I am not a citizen of Brazil.
I’ve been playing soccer for a long time, but now I’m starting to see how it is, the athletes say.
I’m very excited, because I know I will not be able to attend the games because I do not live here in Brazil.
It’s very hard to find a job, they say.
The Olympics is the most important time for me, I said.
So far, I’ve only seen my teammates and coaches.
They are all very friendly and helpful.
They have told me they are happy for me to be able do this, but they have a few questions: How long are you going to be here?
And what will be the best moment of the year?
The last two months, it’s been very hard, said Dias.
We have had to work hard to stay here, they said.
They also asked me to share my story.
I am very proud of my Olympic experience, I told them.
I have been a member of the team for a while and now I feel more confident.
They told me that they are hoping that I will be able go back to Brazil after the Olympics and compete.
I hope so. 2.
