  1. Top 5 The President of the Brazilian Paralympic Committee (BPC), Andrew Parsons, said the goal for the Rio 2016 Games is to win the fifth place in the medals table. And unlike the BOC that determined to be among the top ten in the overall medals won, the position sought by the CPI takes into account the classification in the medals table by the number of golds won. - But I make it clear that if we are in seventh, not the end of the world - said Parsons, on Thursday. The chairman of CPB also said the seventh position in the medals table is the objective outlined for the 2012 London Games. The evolution of the Brazilian Paralympic sport in recent editions of the Games was significant. Atlanta 1996 to 37 th place. Sydney 2000 - 24th place. Athens 2004 - 14th place. Beijing 2008 - 12 th place. All in line In the past week in Brazil were two of the main planners of the 2012 London Games. Jeff Keas (temporary facilities, design and planning) and Dan Epstein (sustainability) gave various explanations of how the work has been developed for the Londoners did not disappoint in 2012. But I'll play here, a schedule was designed as preparation. And these figures give an idea that, at least for now, although there is nothing extraordinary in the late River 2005 to 2007 - the year were devoted to planning. Putting all of the paper. Preparation of executive projects. 2007/2008 - Details of projects and commencement of demolition. 2008/2011 - Output of large buildings. 2011/2012 - Implementing the Event-tests. As we can see, the Londoners took two years detailing the entire project to then begin the construction.
  2. The President of the Brazilian Olympic Committee (COB) and the Rio 2016 Organizing Committee, Carlos Arthur Nuzman, unveiled on Monday in Brasilia during a ceremony at the Presidential Palace that the country's goal for 2016 is to finish among the top ten placed. But calm. It is among the top ten in the total number of medals. In Beijing Olympics 2008, Brazil won a total of 15 medals (three gold, four silver and eight bronze) which gave the country the 23 th place in the medals table. Except that if we consider only the total number of medals with 15, Brazil finished in 17th place. The last place of the coveted Top 10 was occupied by Ukraine with 27 medals. In Beijing, the tenth place in the ranking obtained by larger number of gold medals went to France, who won seven - the same number of Ukraine and the Netherlands. In the tiebreaker, the French totaled 16 silver and 17 bronze, the Ukrainians, five silver and 15 bronze, and the Dutch, five silver and four bronze. To London in 2012, the goal is to win a greater number of medals that reached in Beijing in 2008.
