Up until today, the Summer Olympics have been held 27 times (6 editions in North America, 16 in Europe, 3 in Asia and 2 in Oceania). The Summer Olympic 2016 is unique for many reasons. Golf has been reinstated after a 112-year absence. The Rio 2016 games will be the first to feature Olympians born in the year 2000. The rule says, the Olympians must have been born before Jan. 1, 2003 with relaxation to certain games for health and safety reasons. A team of athletes (10 refugees) who were forced to flee their countries will compete under the Olympic flag. There are 7.5 million tickets, with prices ranging from $40 (for some swimming events) to almost $3000 (for the best seats at the opening ceremony). Organizers will prepare 60,000 meals per day to feed the athletes. Rio 2016 will appoint 70,000 volunteers. 'Taxistas' or Rio's taxi drivers were given opportunity to join a free English course. Total cost of Rio 2016 will mount up to €10.24 billion ((37.6 billion Brazilian Real) including €6.56 billion (24.1 billion Real) for the infrastructure of the city, € 1.77 billion (6.5 billion Real) for sports facilities and €1.91 billion (7 billion Real) for the operation and organization of the event.
