Rio 2016 Look of the Games

Recommended Posts

That story about Rio stealing London's documents is truly apalling. What a terrible way for Rio to begin the next four years. Disgusting.

What is it called? A Mexican standoff...now seems like poetic justice for the little Brazilian caper in London. :lol:

Shame, shame!!

I was really wondering when some episode like that was going to break.

Speaking of Rio's lawyers...

Idiot people are anywhere. At least, Rio 2016 Committee fired them all as soon as they knew what happened.

Yes, they fired them -- but only because LOCOG exposed them. These people didn't hatch this plan on their own. It was a coordinated effort. Someone told them what to look for. These weren't low-level people either. If they were in London observing, they had to be fairly high-ranking members of the organizing committee. It looks very shady to me.

Yes, only Brazil have bad people... And all the country must pay for a crime of a group of 10 people.

You must be probably right... <_<

BTW, Americans or whatever-nationality never been part in suck kind of scandals...

No, I don't think it's a coodinated action from the Organizing Committee... Indeed, LOCOG said if asked all documents would be released to Rio 2016 OC without problems.

More, how did London people knew there were some copy-paste of digital files???

Whatever, who made things wrong are now punished...

It's shocking and sad to see this kind of attack on the generosity of their London partners. How did 10+? people infiltrate the top of Rios committee?

Sorry, I shouldn't have really posted that news in this thread. I just found it a little funny in light of the plagurism discussion. The Rio news thread is the place to talk about the stolen papers. This thread is to talk about Rio's stolen logo. :P

They didn't "infiltrate" Rio's team. The ten culprits were Rio staffers, part of the 200-strong Rio team of observers allowed to shadow LOCOG in operation so that they can see/improve ops for their turn. It is an IOC-approved project that is part of the transition of management from one Games to the next.

The ten apparently had been assigned to LOCOG's Technology (whatever that means) sector. I think it's the Dept which probably oversees the maintenance of LOCOG's communications and working files. So they had easy access to sensitive files which LOCOG, trusting the Brazilians, didn't think to classify/segregate them FOR LOCOG EYES ONLY. But the Brazilians, snooping around, thought they had landed on some "hot stuff" which they felt could be used to Rio's turn.

I wonder exactly what files seemed so interesting that they would risk reputation?

Well, obviously, files of a sensitive, confidential nature that LOCOG wanted to keep for itself for the moment. But as the report has said, LOCOG could've ultimately shared these if requested. The point is really NOT the nature or the contents...but the breach in trust by the observers. They were guests of LOCOG. Their actions were 'sneaky' to say the least.

well back to the topic

The Council of the Huatabampo municipality changed its new corporate image, that were almost identical to the logo of the Rio 2016 Olympics.

Modifican logo parecido al de Río 2016

...

A través de un comunicado de prensa, informaron que a partir de la polémica que causó el logotipo en las redes sociales, el presidente municipial ordenó que fuera retirado, así como terminar toda relación con la compañía ‘Solo diseños’ quien hizo el logotipo anterior.
