Are you confident of Rio being able to pull off the Olympic Games successfully?

I think all critical parts of the Olympics will go as planned and most others will be close or not quite as planned. For instance, Rio's governor reportedly said they don't have the money to pay security forces through the Olympics. I'm sure somebody (probably the national Brazilian government) will find the needed funds.
It would make sense for the International Olympic Committee to cough up what's needed. After all, NBC alone is paying the IOC about $1 billion to TV broadcast rights. But beside the IOC definitely not being a charitable organization, it doesn't want to set a precedent that host countries should receive any of its largess.
