Rio 2016 Olympic Park

Recommended Posts

looks a long way to go even thought it I just over a year to go to the games start!

I don't agree with you. A year ago the olympic park was a big dirt field and concrete beams. Today we have all built arenas being finished.

They have come a long way since last year but they still have a lot of work to finish. Look at the aquatic center and velodrome.

Well, here is the HSBC Arena, actual venue of the Gymnastics in the Rio 2016 Olympics, one year before the Pan Am 2007.

The velodrome looks a worry to me. I'd say Rio has really sped up its preparations in the last year though, since the IOC and Federations were issuing subtle warnings. Looking at the Park I'd say apart from the velodrome things look like they're well on course.

My guess is the international press will start pushing about this with a year to go, which is soon

In the "1 year to go" the olympic park will have most of arenas with roof, the urbanism near to be complete and a lot of venues with seats. I think it dont will be so terrible like the 500 days to go.

They might have come a long way over the past year but there is still a way to go I think. I am not saying that they wont be ready, just that I think there is quite a bit of work still to be done!

Brazilian do the things at the last minute (PanAms, World Cup, Youth Day, UN Environmental Meet) - it's like a national tradition... Why people is still worried? :P

One day before the Opening Ceremony everything will be there, smelling new and shining and few employees will be removing dust from the construction...
Nothing new on it.

Tell me about it. The 2011 Pan Ams in Guadalajara also had the same issue. Yeah, this is a full Latin American personality.

I will say the amount of work completed over the past year is great and necessary but why the delay? What happened? The Olympic park shouldn't have been a dirt pit 2 years out.

The works started too late. Brazil built 70% of the olympic park less than 1 year. Why they cant built more 30% in the next year?

I'm sure it's making the IOC really nervous to cut it really short with the games quickly approaching. Aren't there supposed to be test events a year out?

I'm sorry but I'm not aware but why did they start construction so late?

I agree it's astonishing that they completed this work load in a year but why stress it out? Why have the IOC say that this is the worst construction process in history?

IOC President praises the Olympic city in an exclusive interview

International Olympic Committee changes tone and is optimistic for Olympics

What I'm saying is why did the IOC have to say this

http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/5231236

I understand the construction has picked up a gigantic amount but why wait for the Vice President to say that???? Why not have a steady rate of construction?
