For the Games, JR has created two installations of athletes, one depicts Mohamed Younes Idriss, a high-jumper from Sudan, who JR has depicted jumping over a building.

For the second work, JR has created the illusions of an athlete diving into the sea in Barra da Tijuca.

The works have been installed by canvassing the images of the athletes onto scaffolding. With the opening ceremony just hours away, Rio's urban landscape looks set for the Games, thanks to JR's incredible works.
