JR installs giant sized athletes in Rio

French artist JR has created a pair of installations depicting two larger than life athletes on metal poles, placed in dramatic locations across the urban landscape of Rio de Janeiro.

The high jumping athlete represents Mohamed Yours Idriss, a 27 year old from sudan who lives and trains in cologne, germany. ‘He missed out on qualification for the 2016 rio olympics but he is there somehow’
