Nothing embodies the timelessness of athletic competition like the Olympics. More than 10,000 elite athletes scattered across the world will converge upon Paris, France, to test their talent and endurance. The event will mark the first time in a century that the City of Light will host the games, which are set to include nearly every sport from aquatics to wrestling. This year will also see the debut of breakdancing as an Olympic sport. Plus, Snoop Dogg will be providing some color commentary as a special correspondent. Yes, Snoop Dogg.
