Rio attracts thousands of volunteers!

The first 50,000 volunteers have been chosen to work at the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The announcement was made on 26 November and the candidates, who applied from August 2014 and have taken part in the selection process throughout this year, can check to see if their names are among the first selected by inputting their details on the official webpage of the Games.

Of the 50,000 approved candidates, who come from 151 countries, 82 per cent are Brazilians. Among the 18 per cent of non-Brazilians, the largest group is from the USA, followed by Great Britain, Russia and China.
