accueil During the session held in Copenhagen, the city of Rio de Janeiro was designated on 2 October 2009 to organize the 2016 Games. After North America and Central America, South America Finally host the Games. The name of the mascot is Vinicius.
For the first time since the Sydney Games in 2000, the full program is not available within a month of the start of the Games.
French will once again be the great forgotten of these Games, sorry Monsieur de Coubertin.
These games are the worst (except at the sporting level) since 1992, no organization, a president who self-graticules for no reason, a transport system between the lamentable sites, while ten buses were waiting to be used, Of the bus stations constructed with the money from the Games and which may not be open until after the Games. Brazilian spectators who have no respect for the athletes, nor for the countries that participated in the Games. It must be said that many of them had nothing to do with the Games and would have preferred not to have them.
An omnipresent army that wants to take care of everything, even of what does not concern it and with the force anti riot at the center of press in case the journalists of the world would have protested. It reminded me of the banana republics of the 1970s. The Brazilian press reported a diversion of substance from the day after the Games.
These games were really a gross mistake.
