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

The second work depicts 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 just one day until the opening ceremony, Rio's urban landscape looks set for the Games, thanks to JR's incredible works.
