Rio de Janeiro: Ney­mar, can’t wait for the start of the Olympic Games in Rio. Af­ter miss­ing the Copa Amer­ica, the Barcelona player is dream­ing of lead­ing his coun­try to a gold medal.

“I’ve played in the Con­fed­er­a­tions Cup and the World Cup in Brazil, and the Olympic Games will com­plete the set. I’m go­ing to be so happy about it,” he said. “Lon­don was so spe­cial. I had such an amaz­ing time at my first Games and I’ll re­mem­ber it for the rest of my life. The Olympics are dif­fer­ent, be­cause every sport is there. The whole world is watch­ing and it’s an oc­ca­sion that brings friends and fam­ily to­gether. I loved watch­ing the Games on TV when I was a boy, and I had the hon­our of achiev­ing that goal very early in my ca­reer, be­fore play­ing in the World Cup.” One of the things he’s most look­ing for­ward to is see­ing Ja­maican sprinter Usain Bolt: “I re­ally can’t wait to see Usain Bolt in ac­tion. I’m a big fan.” Sport
