Gisele Bundchen To Participate In Olympic Games Opening Ceremony In Rio – Huffington Post Canada
Ex-supermodel Gisele Bundchen will strut her stuff in her native Brazil next month, this time swapping the catwalk for the stadium hosting the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in Rio.
Bundchen, who retired from modelling last year, will walk through a “futuristic gateway” at Maracana Stadium during the Aug. 5 ceremony marking the start of the first Games hosted in South America, according to Extra newspaper.
Extra said the theme of the ceremony would be “the future.”
Rio 2016 organizers did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Bundchen, now 35, who was once the highest paid model in the world, also participated in the prize ceremony for the 2014 World Cup final that pitted Argentina against Germany, in Maracana Stadium as well.
