Humans of Olympics Meet Rafael Oliveira a food supplier at the Games

It takes a lot of people to put together a show as big as the Olympics – where about 10500 athletes from 206 nations compete, 3200 referees and linesmen overlook the contests and more than 21500 media persons look for stories in the arenas.

After his day’s final delivery, Rafael walked into the basketball stadium with two of his colleagues, to sheepishly sneak in a look at the game in progress around midnight. (The last basketball game ends at 12:15 am). It didn’t matter to him or his colleagues that it was a low profile game without Brazil, USA or Argentina in action.

For him and his colleagues, it was a new experience and they didn’t lose the chance to get a couple of videos, with permission from the personnel standing guard in the section, before asking each other to click snaps.

Here Rafael, half scared because he knows he shouldn’t have been there, takes a picture of his colleague with a basketball game in progress in the backdrop.
