The countdown to the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio is down to 95 days.

Throughout the coverage, you will likely see a lot of the "Christ the Redeemer" statue, which overlooks the city. Not only is it the main attraction for tourists visiting Rio, it's one of the New 7 Wonders of the World.

"There's nothing like this. It's just really amazing. It warms your heart and thrills you to the bone."

Standing almost 100 feet tall, the statue towers at the top of the 2,300 foot mountain overlooking Rio.
