Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio are back in their homeland of Brazil to get in on the festivities of Rio's Summer Olympics.
Ahead of the opening ceremony on Friday night, the supermodels got the opportunity to carry the torch past some of the country's most historic landmarks.
On Thursday night, Lima, 35, teared up as she carried the torch through Rio. "I am grateful to experience this incredible honor and dream to carry the Olympic torch," she Instagrammed. "So humbled to be carrying in my home country Brazil" #rio2016 #olimpíadas2016 #TEAMLIMA."
