The 2016 Rio Olympics has arrived and BravoBride is so excited! We hope everyone is enjoying the daily action of the Olympics from water polo all the way to track and field. Athletes from all over the world come to play the sport they love most. Little do most people know, some of these athletes are actually dating or even married!
