Go Team USA! JDR is excited to continue our tradition of supporting this exciting international event. Leading up to the Opening Ceremony tonight at 7:30 pm, we’re running vignettes on NBC to celebrate Southern California Olympic athletes. JDR spots will continue throughout the Games of the XXXI Olympiad in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
This will be the first time that the Olympics are held in South America. From August 5 to 21, over 10,000 elite athletes will represent 206 countries to compete in 42 Olympic sports. Longtime favorite events such as swimming, gymnastics, track and field, beach volleyball and soccer are joined by new additions golf and rugby sevens, which are making Olympic returns. We wish good luck to all the athletes and especially the Southern California competitors representing the United States.
We get chills of pride for USA athletes when we watch these! Check out our vignettes here and look for them on your local NBC station:
