Kuo, don't both sheets picture Olympic and Paralympic events?

(I see only one Paralympic event on each sheet. It's a little strange.)

KGB:

Thank you very much for spotting the errors which I inherited from a catalogue. I revised my post based on the information from the official site (www.rio2016.com). According to this site there will be a third sheet issued in November which contains 11 games.
