  1. Brasil has been good in paralympic sports. I believe that when the games gets started people will look for tickets. It is happening know with thw olympics. I know a lot of people who says that never even thought in going to the olympics and now they are trying to go. We can't say that Rio Paralympics won't work. A month ago the press was saying the same thing about the olympics, and look now. Of course there are a few problems, but it's not the tragedy some people were expecting. It's not the best olympics, but itsn't the worse.

  2. I think the solution is joining the Olympics and Paralympics as one event. Maybe a 1 month event like the FIFA World Cup, but two different events is costs to much. Instead of 4 ceremonies, 2, for example. Preparing food for 16,000 athletes is not much more expensive than preparing food for 10,000. The venues have already to be build thinking in both events. I don't see many obstacles.

  3. I just said that. You have to see all his speech. They're getting only one phrase and taking from the context. The media wil criticize Rio Olympics every time until August 6th. After the opening ceremony they will probably stop criticizing. I saw this film two years ago on the FIFA World Cup. This is not a problem from Rio, it happens every time a south country hosts some important event. Unfortunately, this is the truth. 

  4. Let's say the whole Paes' staement here. He said: "We are here to welcome visitors. Adjustments have to be made and will be made, and we will have all the appropriate structure. As hosts, what we want is that everyone feels at home. Brazil has this thing of welcoming and welcome, but it is lot of many people moving at the same time. It is natural that you have some kind of adjustment to do, but we will make Australians feel at home here. I'm almost putting a kangaroo in front to jump in front of them "

    Besides, there are some people here that are declaring the games death on day one of Athletes Village. It's important to say that the problems are normal to any new apartment/house, at any country in the world. They're not saying that the village is not ready. They're saying that they have problems with eletricity and toilets. London had it problems on day one also did Sochi, Athens and all the cities that had hosted the games. The fact is that Australia's chef de mission exaggerated and disqualified the village. Then she said she had seen progress but there was huge damage caused by what she has said just before

    Every Olympics have it problems, it won't be different in Rio. I mean, the media treatment for the problems, after all, Brazil is not in Europe.
