As the 2016 Paralympics are winding down, we thought we’d look back and pay tribute to the many OIART audio production graduates who worked on the 2016 Rio Olympics. We witnessed Canadian sprinter Andre DeGrasse be anointed the next one by the great Usain Bolt and surprise teenage four-time medallist Penny Oleksiak take home the most medals by a Canadian in a summer games, ever. OIART grads working in many roles helped bring you the action!
