I d'not think the outcome of the Olympic Park is horrible compared to the project. Actually, it's very similar: large promenade, small green islands and a live site at the end. The only major difference to the rendering is the absence of colored areas painted on the floor. However, large green areas has never been a highlight of this project.

Lol. You guys are discussing if the olympics will be a success or a failure? We have to wait the handover to Tokyo to start to compare Rio with other olympics. The only thing I can say for sure now is

Yes, but the concrete presence is very striking. We're a month of games, less than that of the arenas receive the training sessions and the current appearance , would be acceptable to 6 months ago . The Rio 2016 , need to follow the project and deliver an incredible park , as the project indicated that it would be . All right, have enough mess in the park because it is going through works , but still ... the ash presence is too strong. The application design was good , only had to default bet on a blue and green very dark .

But renderings are... just renderings. They'll always be more beautiful, colorfull, brighter than the actual construction. It's a conceptual view of a project design. And they usually change a lot until the end of the construction.

In some renderings they showed colored areas on the floor, but in others don't. So we never knew for sure what would be the final result.

It seems that they'll put some Look of the Games banners, Rio 2016 logos, Olympic Rings... and that's it. The Olympic Park is ready.

The decpeção is ready. It's incredibly ugly the Olympic Park, is far from the beauty of the design . London many consider a gray city ( I disagree ) was greener . Rio is known for green and seems to have a suitable park to Tokyo , London and Chicago.

....oh I think you may not know much about Chicago, it's very green with many man parks and landscaping, planter run along many streets and medians which change out with the seasons. Summer is very green in Chicago.

With exactly one month to go until the start of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, the Main Press Centre (MPC) opened its doors to the world's media on Tuesday (5 July).

The state-of-the-art building, about 27,000 square metres in area, will be the main base for the 6,000 journalists of all nationalities who have been granted accreditation for the Games. The MPC is located in Barra Olympic Park, in the heart of the main cluster of Olympic venues for Rio 2016.

It is from the MPC that some of the most powerful and emotional stories of the year will be sent around the world, delivering the magic of the Games to billions of people.

From Japan to Brazil

On Tuesday, the first journalists moved into their new home. The first tenants include Agence France Presse (AFP), Japanese media outlets Yomuri Shimbum, Asahi and Kyodo News, photographic agency Getty Images, Sports Illustrated magazine, specialist website Around the Rings and Brazilian magazine Veja.

Facilities for journalists at the MPC include a centre for media accreditation, a medical facility, a pharmacy, bank, post office, laundrette and even an official Rio 2016 store. Journalists will also be able to validate their accreditations at the newly renovated international airport when they arrive.

A team of 723 volunteers have completed their initial training and will be working on-site at the MPC. "After a lot of work the time has come to put into practice everything that we have planned for," workforce manager Ana Mathias says. "We are all very excited."

From 29 July, the MPC will be open for business 24/7. Until then, it will function from 7am to 10pm.

Get over it dude! No other Olympic park was built in such a beautiful setting. When you are at the park in Rio you just need to look around you to be in awe of the splendour of nature. Actually, most places in Rio near the ocean are like that. By the way, have you ever been to Rio?

Nice way to sugar coat a cement parking lot without an Olympic Stadium by a smelly lagoon, and regardless of that truth it's not a great excuse for what was promised and what was delivered. Rio will soon be just another past part of the larger IOC problem of bloated egos, deception and lies, corruption and collusion with the highest levels of government and industry, criminal abuse of non profit status, cheating, human rights abuses, environmental disregard and stealing from taxpayers for personal profit and aggrandizement.

Rio will be the greatest success in the history of the games.

It sounds like you've never been to Rio either and has no idea about the potential of that place.

You wanna talk issues, then open up a blog and waste your time discussing the corruption, pollution, etc, of every Olympic city in the past and in the future. It doesn't matter whether it is in a developed or undeveloped country, problems will always be there, since Greece and Rome.

Your opinion (and mine) matter nothing, change nothing, and add to nothing.

But I must add paul that I've notice you always bash everything that is posted positively about Rio. What is your problem? Were you raped by Rio or something? Even then, it wouldn't make sense to disrespect the citizens of that place the way you do. It's their home.

YOU are a TROLL and since trolls deserve no attention, this is the first and last reply you receive from me.

There are a lot of unique and beautiful places in the world, geographically and culturally, Rio is one of many. I will admit I have had a lot of experiences with Brazilians that left a bad taste the last few years (oddly it was often while skiing in the states and Canada but also through business). Mostly those were people who were flying high on cash during the boom and I can tell you the arrogance was consistent and repellent, that kinda left a very bad impression. I've never been to Rio but my business was planning a couple exploratory projects there and I was looking forward to go because it would have been on an expense account, then Brazil's bubble burst so spectacularly that all plans were scrapped......and I'm certainly not going to pay out of pocket to check it out.

I'm sure the games will go fine, the sun will shine, the aquatic water will look blue and crisp, the flame will burn, the crows will cheer (and boo).....it's time for the games in Rio and they gave their right leg to make it happen. I'm sure Lula will enjoy it from his condo and Tom Bach will probably gain 5 more pounds. No matter how the games go Rio seemed much more interesting before the bid than now. I guess I saw too much sausage being made.

Yes, I agree in part .
The Brazil 2005-2012 really seemed to be the new world power . The economic boom was incredible .
The candidacy of Brazil charmed everyone . But the country was involved in economic and political crisis that has affected the Olympic Games.
The games will be good ? Yes! The opening will be good ? Yes . But I think Rio is the most wonderful place on earth I do not agree .
I put the Olympics in Rio at the same level of Athens. But without comparison in the organization with London or the grandeur of Beijing.

His experience with Brazilian does not reflect the reality of the majority, but there are several Brazilians in this way ... they surfed the economic boom , now shipwrecked . The Brazilian is a good person and loves foreigners .
ALL ARE WELCOME IN AUGUST ! It will not be the best Olympics of all time , but it will be a good Olympics.

I do agree with you Bezzi. I am proud to be one of Rio 2016 volunteers. I will help Rio to deliver the best Olympic Games ever. :D

Lol. You guys are discussing if the olympics will be a success or a failure? We have to wait the handover to Tokyo to start to compare Rio with other olympics. The only thing I can say for sure now is:

The sport arenas will be ready.
No one will be sick of zika next month (golf players need a new excuse).
No one will be sick because the waters in the competition areas.
The bay will still be poluted in some areas.
Some parts of the city that was degrated are now renovated.
The transport system had a giant increase since the bid time.
The state of Rio is bankrupt (because the loss of oil money).
The city of Rio is financially healthy.
I don't know who will be the President.
The favelas will be dangerous.
The other areas will be safe.
Some paulistas are still upset that Rio will host the biggest event of the world.

No matter what the pessimist Paul says.
No matter if will be the best or the worst olympics ever.
Rio has changed.
We already won.
And I am very happy as carioca.

You said everything!!! I believe in a good games, but honestly, not like London or Sydney. Maybe better than Athens and more happy than Beijing.
