The greatest show on Earth- Olympic- is the stage to stage different drama and performance as well. It is a show of different personal fashion. Many fashions have been adopted from the Olympic games.
The 90’s is regarded as the clean shaven generation and after a long vacation of bearded Olympians, Rio 2016 sees the show of facial hair again. Rio 2016 can be termed as the re-arrival of facial hair.
In some cases, Rio 2016 is not only the show of sportsmanship but also a parade ground of greatest and latest grooming trends.
Rio-2016 will be remembered for the fashion of beard. It has already been declared that there are more bearded persons in the Olympic village this year than a raiding party of the Vikings.
Let us start from Athletes.
Beard has caused a lot of chaos in the athlete’s village. Doesn’t it sound something abnormal? Don’t be afraid?
Australia’s Shooting sensation Daniel Repacholi and Rhys Howden of Water Polo have mainly raised a storm.
Repacholi has already declared him the King of Beards. On the other hand, Howden frequently quotes that the bearded are the better and distinguished persons.
They have started comparing their beards and passing jokes against one another (though in a very friendly manner).
To name the Rio 2016 as the bearded Rio the Americans are not far behind. Joe Kovacs of Shot Put has shown his masculinity by throwing 16-pound ball to 74 feet away. He likes to compare himself as the Ancient Greek Olympians.
Now the chaos (if it is thus!!) has spread so much that the other athletes of the Olympic village have started deciding to have facial hair.
Another field of bearded Olympians is wrestling. Though previously the wrestler didn’t allow facial hair, now it becomes a fashion. And Rio 2016 has seen its final exhibition. Daniel Dennis from the USA of Freestyle Wrestling is another testimony of bearded Olympian and for having the beard his nickname “Mountain Toughness” has got it’s evaluation.
The style of Andy Bisek, a Greco-Roman Wrestling, from the USA is also unique in Olympic.
3. Rowing and Sailing
Generally, the people related to sea and ship are found bearded. Following the trend in Rio 2016, the players of the rowing and sailing show their eagerness to be a good sailor!
In the case of having a beard in Rio 2016, the Americans are leading from the front like other sectors of the Globe.
4. Track and field
Track and field are the main attraction of an Olympic game. And Rio 2016 is not an exception. In the after Olympic period the mostly followed styles are from the track and field. Rio 2016 has also experienced the trend.
The American track and field team has appeared in Rio 2016 with a bearded view.
What is the main advertise of an Olympic game from the last 3 Olympic? Of course the Usain Bolt. Have you seen in Rio 2016?
If not? Have a look
Yes! Right, you are. Usain is in his bearded look here.
Among the team events, the most popular are basketball in the Olympic games. And the Basketball has got the popularity for the Dream Team.
From which country does the Dream Team come from? America!! is there any more team events which are followed more than Basketball?
This year the Australian team must be termed as the bearded team and there is no doubt about this.
The bearded Aussies are also in their Hockey team. No doubt, this year Australian Sports Ministry has declared extra bonus on having beard!!
Though Football is not so much popular Olympic, but in Rio 2016 it has already spread a smell of competition. The reason is very easy. It is because the 2016 Olympic is being taken place in the abode of Pele, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and Kaka.
But the limelight of Football is on the Brazil Superstar Neymar. To perform in the Olympic, he has sacrificed the Copa-America-2016.
Why? Brazil has not yet got an Olympic Gold in Football.
A good number of Brazilian youths have been here with a good looking beard.
8. The officials
Even the coach and officials of Rio 2016 are found with a beard.
Beard has become a great matter of fact in the Iran team.
The coach of Iran has been bound to shave his beard when his team got a chance in the final competition. Here again, Beard is the factor.
9. The Fans
10. The utter surprise in Rio 2016
The title may surprise you. Isn’t it? Off course.
Thus, now come to the point. Have you ever seen a Japanese with a full beard in the history of the game? But Rio 2016 has shown also that.
Therefore, is there any doubt to declare the Rio 2016 as the Bearded Rio?
