My friend do you know Brazil to say this stupid coment?? OK, Argentina and Chile are better places to live, but they are failed!!!!! Brazil is the only country in South America that has money to host an Olympic Games! And Rio de Janeiro is the most beautiful city in South America!!
What's wrong with this. First, let me start by saying that the original proposition dealt with WINTER games. My friend, I can't remember much snow in beautiful Rio.
Second _ Have you been to South America? Yes, Rio is beautiful, and will most likely get to host the first South American games before too long. Buenos Airies might have been Rio's competition once, but Argentina will have to rebuild itself now first. But to describe Chile as failed is ridiculous. Having been in Santiago recently, it is probably the most prosperous and vibrant city economically that I have seen in South America. Not only is Santiago a contender, It could host both Summer and Winter games. So don't knock Chile, Santiago _ I actually think Rio has more social, economic problems.
Sorry friend, I forgot that we are talking about Winter Games, I just said that because I always see people saying bad things about Rio de Janeiro and even dont know the city. People think that Brazil is like Iraq, and I hate when people think this. Sorry, I know that you were not saying this. But I still think that Brazil is the better choice for an SOG and Santiago for WOG. But I would love to see Auckland as Summer Olympic host.
