This BBC Sport Olympic ad features several animated jungle animals competing in Olympic events.

The beautifully animated ad features several animals as they prepare for their event and as storm clouds circle above. With a flash of lightning, the events all begin. Jaguars sprint, a sloth performs gymnastics, two crocodiles perform a high dive, monkeys play beach volleyball and an anteater weightlifts. Despite being portrayed with animals, the ad captures the same intensity in which real athletes prepare for their Olympic events. The ad blends in animated Olympians performing the events as well and at the end, a runner meets up with the other Olympians overlooking Rio and the Olympic stadium.

BBC is one of the broadcast partners of YouTube for coverage during the Rio Olympic Games.
