  1. I was really expecting us to be in the top 5. Maybe in 2020. Anyways, it was a pretty nice evolution in the total of medals.
  2. Great day! Brazil's Lula charged as 'top boss' of Petrobras graft scheme Brazilian prosecutors charged ex-President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva on Wednesday with being the "top boss" of a vast corruption scheme at state oil company Petrobras, in a major blow to the leftist hero's hopes of a political comeback. It was the first time that Lula, still Brazil's most popular politician despite corruption accusations against him and his Workers Party, was charged by federal prosecutors for involvement in the political kickbacks scheme at Petroleo Brasileiro (PETR4.SA), as the company is formally known. Public Prosecutor Deltan Dallagnol told a news conference that the Petrobras scheme had caused an estimated 42 billion real ($12.6 billion) in losses. Lula's lawyers said in a statement that prosecutors lacked evidence to back up their accusations which were part of political persecution to stop him running in the 2018 election. [...] "He was the conductor of this criminal orchestra," Dallagnol said during a detailed presentation of the investigation. "The Petrobras graft scheme aimed at keeping the Workers Party in power by criminal means."

The charges stem from the Operation Car Wash money laundering investigation. Prosecutors allege the former president benefited from "illicit advances in connection with a renovation of a triplex" in a beach town near São Paulo. The investigation extends to the president of the Lula Institute, Paulo Okamoto, and Leo Pinheiro, president of OAS, a construction company heavily investigated under Operation Car Wash.

  4. 167,000 people today at the Olympic Park! A record for both the 2016 Olympics and Paralympic Games. The record during the Olympic Games last month was 158,000. Rio 2016 Paralympic ticket sales exceed 1.8 million The Games are now the second biggest ever in terms of ticket sales, overtaking Beijing 2008. The Rio 2016 Paralympic Games have now sold more than 1.8 million tickets, overtaking Beijing 2008 as the second biggest Games ever in terms of ticket sales. On the first day of competition on Thursday (8 September) 105,000 people attended venues on the Barra Olympic Park, while a further 66,000 tickets were sold for upcoming days of competition. Today, 144,000 tickets have been sold for the Barra Olympic Park and the second evening of track and field at the Olympic Stadium is sold out. With Saturday evening’s session also sold out in athletics, the IPC are working with the Organising Committee to increase capacity in the venue. Earlier this month, the venue capacity was reduced as a result of cuts to Rio 2016’s service levels. https://www.paralympic.org/news/rio-2016-paralympic-ticket-sales-exceed-18-million
