We are now feeding almost 30,000 atheletes, trainers, officials, and media, resulting in an estimated 3.5 million meals prepared over the next 2 weeks. There are over 800 recipes on our menu and more than 7,000 people working around the clock to prepare it all.

This is truly a world-class experience, for the greatest athletes in the world...
