Athlete Ambassadors

If you didn’t already know, Cisco will connect more people from more countries to the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games than to any sporting event in history. But we’re not just connecting the Games. As its official network provider, we’re also partnering with some of Brazil’s most talented athletes who represent the values of true Olympians – both on and off the field. We invite you to get to know our Athlete Ambassadors.
