Turns out the Iranian women's Olympic team wins the rowing and sailing competitions as they were the only teams who trained in the equivalent of hazmat gear.

The people involved in the Olympic sailing events on national and international levels have been protesting this for 5 years. At one point the Brazilian government was saying, "We'll have it cleaned up in time." Now they've pretty much given up and their tune has changed to: "We'll do a daily sweep of the area for dead bodies and discarded sofas and TVs."

The olympics was decided long time ago. Even the 2020 games are already decided (Tokyo)

No one wanted to host the games. Boston was a candidate city till the leaders here decided it was going to be too much to handle.

I honestly think that the modern Olympic Games may be winding down.

The folly that has been the bidding process for 2022/2024 highlights the biggest problem.

The honor of hosting a games used to trump all other aspects but now the IOC is struggling to find enough cities to bid because the skyrocketing costs are now trumping the honor and most first world cities are dropping future bids or not even bothering to submit.

If something major doesn't change, I don't see the games surviving many more disasters like Sochi or what it appears we are about to see in Rio.

The idea of a centralized Olympic venue has been suggested in the past but the lack of money siphoning opportunities for the IOC means that project will never actually come to fruition.

I'm actually looking forward to the day when the IOC opens the bid for a Summer/Winter games and no city/country humors them

That or "Baghdad 2060"

I do business with a major company in Brasil...they are the slowest, least hard working, messed up people to deal with. It is endemic throughout the country I guess.

Yep, in 2014 they had the World Cup. One of my ex coworkers went down there for 2 weeks and had some of the craziest sex stories I've heard, with photos!

Just pool the money for the next ten olympics together and have a centralized location on the moon.

This. Yeah, it's frustrating dealing with the European's 234 weeks of holiday each year, but even worse is dealing with Brazilians who don't even have that sort of excuse as to why they aren't responding.

I may have to make a trip down. I'm friends and part time assistant coach to a girl that has a real shot at making the team for weightlifting. Mattie Rogers is her name, and she is one of the top 5 USA women in the sport. The USA currently has 3 women's spots for Rio. 1 spot is filled by a girl named Jenny Arthur, the second one is assumed to be going to Sarah Robles, who is a former Olympian and America's most internationally competitive female lifter. The 3rd slot is still up for contention. Mattie is competing at a special Olympic trials session at the Junior Nationals in Philadelphia this weekend, and trying to reach a total that will strengthen her position to battle for that 3rd slot. Keep an ear out for her name, because I'm pretty sure that if she makes the Olympic team, she will become that household name/Cinderella story that comes out of each Olympics.
