With thanks to the IOC for selecting my #OlympicDay 2015 contest entry as the winner, I’ll be seeing “Christ the Redeemer” up close during my trip to Rio de Janeiro this December!

It’s been a very exciting week!

On Tuesday, the IOC unveiled the winner of their 2015 #OlympicDay contest.

And the winner, selected from among 21,000 #OlympicDay entries, was none other than my #OlympicDay GPS doodle!

The prize: a trip for two to Rio de Janeiro in December for a sneak peek of the Olympic Park ahead of next summer’s Olympic Games.


In addition to the 25.8 km recorded for this GPS doodle were ~25 more for some behind-the-scenes dot-connecting.

See it on Strava
