Madrid 2016 Official: Rio Has Worst Olympics Bid

Well, technically Rio does have the worst bid of the four. If it wasn't for the fact that South America has never hosted the Olympics, Rio probably wouldn't have been shortlisted. Of course the Madrid official shouldn't have said that though, but Rio making a big deal over it and filing an official complaint just brings more publicity, which I can't see as being a good thing.

I'm not saying Rio isn't capable of hosting nor am I saying Rio won't or shouldn't win. I am just comparing the technical plan to the 3 other cities in this race.

Of course I'm sure I'll be called prejudice and what not for saying this but whatever.

Agree with you completely, kyle.
