The athletes have arrived, Brazil has started the party, and cauldron is on fire – let the Games begin!

Our Ivies in Rio will have a week before they get the chance to compete; hopefully this is enough time to recover from the Opening Ceremonies party.

Nikki Okwelogu will be the first to compete as the women’s shot put qualifying round is on Friday August 12th, while Kate Grace’s 800m final is the final event on our Ivy schedule.  Check out the full schedule below on who will compete and when.
