Olympic Supermodel Adriana Lima

Supermodel, Adriana Lima graces the cover of Vogue Brazil, as the country welcomes the world to the Rio Olympics. The magazine also features an inside photo spread that Lima shot on location at a gym in Rio.

Lima, who is an avid boxer, is shown with some of the young participants of Fight For Peace, an organization that strives to improve the lives of at risk youth in Rio, through a combination of boxing, martial arts, education and personal development.

The night before the opening ceremonies of the Olympic games, Lima carried the Olympic torch in her native Brazil, becoming emotional as she stood in Praça Mauá on Olympic Boulevard. She later described the experience as one of the best moments of her life.
