In Rio, there will be many individual and team track events. One of the lesser known, and most fascinating of them all, is Keirin. Along with Judo, Keirin is the only other Olympic sport to have originated from Japan. There, it is a highly competitive and highly regulated sport that requires unique dedication unlike any other cycling event.
Keirin made its Olympic debut in 2000 and it will certainly be an interesting sport to watch in Rio.
