Christian sports media ministry Passion for Sport will be at the Olympic Games this summer reporting on the sights, sounds and stories from Rio during the Games of the XXXI Olympiad.
Passion for Sport exists to introduce sports fans to Jesus through media. Each week the UK-based mission group produces two radio programmes, Planet Sport and Planet Sport Football Africa, heard on over 75 stations in 20 countries worldwide.
The ministry brings 24 years’ media reporting experience to the Games in Rio, after reporting from every Olympics since the 1992 Games in Barcelona.
In Rio the team of five journalists will be recording interviews and stories for the two shows, as well as providing radio material for more than 400 radio stations in English and Spanish.
The team will interview athletes and fans, and find out how the local church and visiting mission groups are using the opportunity that the Games brings to introduce sports fans and visitors to Jesus.
As well as radio material the team will also produce videos, a comprehensive social media service and a daily blog capturing the atmosphere in Rio as the city hosts the Olympic Games.
