Interactive: Take a look inside the Rio Olympic village
The Games begin in just over two weeks, but the Athletes Village opens officially on Sunday, meaning 10,500 athletes and another 7,000 staff
The 31-building Rio Olympics Athlete's village compound should pamper the 10,500 athletes and another 7,000 staff members during the games.
It’s set among tennis courts, soccer fields, seven swimming pools — with mountains and the sea as a backdrop — and topped off by a massive dining-kitchen compound that’s as large as three football fields.
“I want to help all the athletes have a wonderful welcome to Brazil,” said Priscilla Antonello, a residence center deputy manager whose job is to help athletes find their accommodations. Will she be star-struck by so many Olympians?
