Like EDGEtv Network, the Olympics is about so much more than sport; it’s about following dreams, doing the best with what you’ve got, and having fun along the way.

We’ve got some Edgeteers in Rio documenting the action. We’ve also got exciting stuff to share about some of our influencers. Oh yeah, BEER…we review five summer brews that’ll make you sing along to the Olympic theme song…in your underwear…wearing waterwings.
