The Olympics

Held during the summer months, over the course of 16 days in major cities across the world, the games attract a global tv audience of over 3 billion, though for sports fanatics, attending the games in person, to witness the pinnacle of live sport and soak up the carnivalesque atmosphere, is a must experience at least once in their lives!
