Nudists wear just a suntan as they vie for medals in football, beach volleyball, swimming, sprinting, race walking plus non-Olympic sport such as tug of war.
WHILE Team GB have been storming it at the Games, there has also been a rather different type of Olympics going on in Rio.
A group of brave nudists are competing in Rio’s NAKED Olympics every weekend, in a stripped back version of the Games.
The sporty naturists wear just a suntan as they vie for medals in football, beach volleyball, swimming, sprinting and race walking on Rio’s only nudist beach.
There are also extra non-Olympic sports such as the tug of war, surfing, which is due to debut at the 2020 Olympic games in Tokyo, and Peteca, a traditional game in Brazil which is played with a hand shuttlecock.
The stark-naked games on the dedicated naturist Abrico beach in Grumari are a throwback to the ancient Greek athletes who also played in the nude to honour the gods.
According to Organisers of the Praia do Abrico (Abrico Beach) Olympic Games, people of all ages and all shapes and sizes are welcome.
