I thought you guys might like a virtual tour of the venue for the equestrian events in Rio. If I’m curious, I suspect you are, too.
You’ll have to click through the links to see the photos and videos. I don’t have the rights to distribute the images, but I can link to websites. (Rhonda here. I realized I could use the free embedded Getty Images. )
The equestrian events will be held about 20 kilometers away from the Olympic Village at Deodoro Equestrian Center.
The equestrian center was originally built for the 2007 Pan American Games, but was expanded for the Olympics. Here’s a page with photos of the expansion areas, including work on the stadium and the stalls, designed by BCMF Arquitetos.
And here are the athletes arriving, complete with team barn decor, courtesy of the Rio Olympics website.
Hey, I updated the “Flying Down to Rio” post with a video from the Wall Street Journal. Enjoy!
