Is it a good idea to host the 2016 Olympic games in Brazil?

There is said to be a large amount of Human fecal matter in both the sand and water of the beaches as well as garbage left by people in the water as well that kills and significantly endagers marine wildife.

A big part of the Olympic games involves swimming and triathlons in the water, I have some concern for the swimmers like Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte and would not blame them for wanting to back out while they still can. What do you think?

    Boy, it is a HORRIBLE idea. Brazil isn't good enough to host the Olympic Games.

    Although it has a pretty good army (the brazilian army is the best in Latin America), it's not trained enough. The police isn't trained enough either, they have a hard time fighting against drugs. ISIS is going to attack Rio, that's for sure. Public security here is s.h.i.t., neither the police or the army are good enough to defend a terrorist attack!

    What else, Eduardo Paes (Rio de Janeiro's mayor) is a really dumb person and he hired a engineer so awesome that his civil works for the Olympic Games lasted MONTHS. That's right! MONTHS. And guess what? He blamed the wind for being "too strong and violent", that's the puerile "reason" the cycling bridge lasted some months.

    Another issue : Public money in Brazil is oftenly bribed, the government does that very oftenly. There's 'not enough' money to invest in the Olympic Games (and other public stuff we are having trouble with) because the politicians are way too busy filling their pockets with money that's supposed to be seriously invested.

    Brazil isn't a serious country, at all. Whoever decided this was a good idea was high AF.

    This is a very good question. Personally, I think the time has come to build an "Olympic Sporting Facility City", that would always be used for each and every Olympic games going forward. Countries are going bankrupt to host the games with visions of a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, only to have expenses and empty mostly unusable venues when the Olympics are done. Funding for building and ongoing maintenance would come from each country that currently participates. Eateries could be on the grounds and leased by restaurateurs for the games. It could be near a large city where shuttle service would be available to each venue. This would be a permanent solution to the rotating country BS that is currently in place.

      (#) infrastructure is also pretty good but the money could be put towards any extra infrastructure required (eg upgrading road, rail, convention centre / similar spaces (for Olympic sport use like gymnastics etc but can be used after that for the local community (eg performances etc)

    Brazil is a large country but it's not a good idea. Either they do it in another country or another city. Brazil is not so great at the moment. The Zika Virus is taking over a lot of people, then there's bacteria in the water in which sailors are going to go on, then there's pollution and the corrupt government, then there's violence that has been increasing in the city of Rio de Janeiro (and maybe a lot more during the olympics) and then there are the places people are living in. The living conditions aren't safe and the rooms aren't nice. There are toilet problems and the rooms don't look good or small.

  • It was a stupid idea to expect one country to spend Billions of Dollars on Athletic Facilities for 2 Major Events that were only 2 years apart. It's too late now. The Olympics should have been moved to China, since China still has all the Athletic Facilities, Stadiums and Arenas that they built for The 2008 Summer Olympics.

    I don't think it is a good idea to host the Olympic games in Brazil because the public security is poor and the accommodations are not good enough to ensure athletes can have a good rest before and after the competition.

    It is a little late to ask if it is a good idea - The damage is already done .To ask a 3rd world Country like that to put up billions to try and make it work was stupid in the first place ! Years ago our Grandfather died and had cans of money from Brazil , we took the money to the Bank and the girl laugh and said . " that Country changed hands 3 times since that money was any good " . Brazil was doing ok until someone put the Olympic game pressure on them .You best go down and make it work - Good Old USA !

    This Olympic games will go "bust." All the Olympic Committee did was to try and be "politically correct", and now they're in big trouble! Security will be professionally untrained police attempting to protect the athletes and visitors from harm. This could turn out to be a haven for wannabe terrorists. I'll be very surprised if something isn't tried to disrupt the Olympic Games, or cause some harm. I pray nothing happens!

    With its white sandy beaches, traveling mountains and picturesque harbour, it's no wonder that Rio de Janeiro is recognized as the "cidade maravilhosa", or marvellous city and with hotelbye you are able to get the chance and visit this excellent city. Rio de Janeiro is facing the South Atlantic shore and is the second-largest city in Brazil. This city is blessed with one of the very most beautiful organic adjustments for a metropolis in the world. The amazing landscape is one of the reasons that readers decided Rio de Janeiro. Throughout carnival year, a event that everybody else seen, the streets load with music and ornately costumed dancers attracting tourists from all over the globe.

    YES!

    Because swimming and sailing in raw sewage, collapsing structures (that bike path built for the Olympics that fell into the sea), bankrupting Rio, getting retired policemen back because the company hired to provide security only has 500 people instead of the 3000 needed, the worries about the ZIKA virus (which meant quite a few athletes decided to not attend) .....

    .... well it's a lot more entertaining than the actual EVENTS isn't it. I mean, if you've seen one weightlifter lift one weight there's no point in watching the rest of that event. Not to mention how Terry the anemic asthmatic gorilla could lift that weight with one hand.

    Imagine if they held the Games somewhere safe, some rich country that's politically stable, with great facilities .... then you'd only have the actual events! Man that would be so BORING!
