The 2016 Rio Olympics theme song has finally been revealed! As the athletes gear up to fight for the gold, the music video for “Alma e Coração,” which means “soul and heart,” dropped on July 5. The motivational jam is sung by Samba crooner Thiaquinho and rapper Projota. The video certainly gets our blood pumping just from watching. Check out the inspiring clip with lyrics to match!
The music video definitely embodies it’s chorus, “fight and win!” It features the giant Rio stadium and takes us on a journey behind several athletes as they train their bodies vigorously to prepare for the competition. Although the song is not in the English language, there are subtitles so each grain of truth can be understood. The vid shows fighters practicing their jabs while the swimmers are seen doing laps and perfecting their dives. Meanwhile, the track stars are also working to defeat their fastest time as the gymnasts keep focusing on their flawless form!
The lyrics read: “With no sweat, the value of achievement remains in vain. It’s always time to make something better happen. And your time will come, now it’s real!” This epic music video comes at the perfect time, considering the Summer Olympics will air from August 5 to August 21 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
It’s certainly going to be a year to remember, especially with Michael Phelps, 31, who is headed to the Olympics again after qualifying for a spot on the United States’ swimming team on June 29. He’s making history as the first U.S. swimmer to ever qualify this many times — this will be his FIFTH year!
The 2016 Olympics will also entail several other highly-skilled stars making their way to Brazil, including male swimmer Ryan Lochte, 31, basketball stud Klay Thompson, 26, soccer star Alex Morgan, 27, female swimmer Missy Franklin, 21, and gymnast Simone Biles, 19, in their quest for victory. But who will take home the bronze, gold and silver medals in each category!? We think they’re all winners for even making it this far!
