“The Olympic stages in Rio are much different from before the world left them six months ago. The area which once stood the center of attention across the globe is now barren, torn up, picked apart, empty, and sad looking.”
It’s not surprising, is it? I mean don’t most host cities end up with stuff they built for the Games that never gets used again? It begs the question of why the IOC doesn’t limit selections to cities that already have the venues, but we know that would never fly with that group. No opportunity for graft!
