The Rio Olympic Games gave us everything from Great British triumphs to inspirational international performances and everything in between. For three weeks this summer, the atmosphere at Brandwave HQ was somewhere between Wall Street’s stock exchange and a London Zoo, as the daily dramas of the Games were shouted across the floor. As we come down from the Olympic high, the Brandwave team reflect on their favourite moments from the 2016 Olympic games.
