Tony Azevedo Has The Answers, But Test Your Own Olympic Knowledge

‘How much do you really know about the Olympics?’

NBC Olympics asked that question of several 2016 Olympians via video this week, including diver David Boudia and water polo player Tony Azevedo.

Put your own knowledge to the test against the fun, yet tough questions to find out how much you know about the event whose 2016 version kicks off just 20 days from now in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
