Alli Simpson Kicks Off 2016 Olympic Games with Torch Relay

A few days ago, Alli Simpson and her brother Cody Simpson hopped on a plane to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil for the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics!

The Aussie siblings ran with the Olympic flame on Friday morning (August 5th) in the official torch relay during the opening ceremony.

“Yesterday was completely surreal!!” Alli said. “A milestone in a young ones life. To run with the Olympic flame in the official torch relay, day of the opening ceremony.”

She added, “An absolutely breathtaking honor – thank you @cocacola & to anyone & everyone who helped make this possible – my life has changed, this will stay with me forever! I love Brazil! Let’s go team AUS #thatsgold @rio2016.”

Celeb Secrets sat down with Alli before she boarded her plane to talk about this once-in-a-lifetime experience!
