We're getting into the Olympic spirit at Forvo with the release of a series of pronunciation guides for Rio 2016. The guides, which you can find here, are designed to help people learn to pronounce some of the tricky names of athletes participating at this year's Games.

Find it hard to pronounce the names of the athletes Živilė Vaiciukevičiūtė or Tuğçe Şahutoğlu? What about weightlifter Saeid Mohammadpourkarkaragh? Fear not! Help is at hand with Forvo's Olympic Games pronunciation guides. All our pronunciations are made by native speakers from the athletes' countries of origin. And if you see any names are missing from Forvo - get your requests in now, or tweet us @Forvo.
