The 2016 Summer Olympics have seemingly all but officially arrived.

And for any soon-to-be spectators who can't seem to find an anticipatory thrill for the upcoming Games in Rio de Janeiro, Katy Perry and NBC have created the ultimate remedy. 

In a moving tribute to the mental, physical and emotional challenges the world's most elite competitors face, the pop songstress' latest inspiring track, "Rise," is paired with images of some of the world's most renowned athletes—from Michael Phelps to Usain Bolt and Gabby Douglas. 

If the opening clips of Christ the Redeemer don't claim your rapt attention, the remaining flashes of pure, athletic willpower are almost certain to.

Check it out! Chills guaranteed.
