WITH ONE VOICE
As part of the Rio 2016 Cultural Olympiad, With One Voice celebrates arts and homelessness worldwide, with workshops, pop up performances around the city, an art exhibition and other events.
Not original but the BBC does this kind of event so well, with its excellent commentating, quick access to all the latest news, live coverage and video highlights as the games unfold.
We're all rooting for Team GB and this dedicated site will tell you all you need to know about our athletes. The Medals Table on the homepage will ensure you're up to speed on going for gold. Take part in Bring On The Great, where you can create an inspirational message on a Bahia band to show your support. All the messages will be brought together on a Great British flag.

Once the dust has settled from Rio 2016, the public can join in the fun at this event on Saturday, 27th August. Organised with ITV and the National Lottery, I Am Team GB will be the UK's biggest sports day with events across the country.
The IOC's website is your port of call for Olympian facts, information on the Games and an archive of videos of defining sporting achievements.
