CENTURY 21 Affiliated Founder, Bill Kessler and McFarland Team Leader, Jeff Schraml are enjoying their time at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil! Called the “Jeff and Bill Big Adventure”, the pair fought their way through eight airports and 14 gate changes before arriving at their condo in the Ipanema Beach neighborhood.

Despite the negative press, Kessler and Schraml are pleased by the city of Rio De Janeiro. "Rio is relatively empty. No traffic jams. No food waits...Citizens are very welcoming and great fun," said Kessler.

Next on the list was Men's Rugby with USA losing to Argentina 14-17. Kessler and Schraml spent nine hours watching twelve Rugby matches at Campo De Rugby - Deodoro. Fiji took Gold, which was the first time Fiji has won a Gold Medal in any sport in the history of the Olympics.

Kessler and Schraml scored center-court tickets to the Nadal and Williams Tennis matches, but unfortunately both matches were rained out. They didn't let the rain end their fun, and they spent the day in the Olympic Village.
