Nuzman is "proud" of project Rio for 2016 Games


Copenhagen, 28 set (EFE) .- The chairman of the committee of the candidacy of Rio de Janeiro at the 2016 Olympic Games, Nuzman, proved to be "proud" before the project presented by the Rio de Janeiro.

According Nuzman, which is also ahead of the Brazilian Olympic Committee (COB), the goal has been "completed" to receive the support of the Evaluation Committee of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

"No one can doubt for a project that was approved by the IOC, something that fills us with pride. And the rapporteur of the committee appointed him as the best," said the manager directly from Copenhagen, where he will be the announcement of the next host of the Games in Friday.

Nuzman said that the Olympic committee had not reported any critical point in the application of Rio, and sent an explanation from the IOC on the difficulties in areas such as accommodation and transport.

"The project of Rio de Janeiro with 150 contracts in hotels, something no other candidate can make. There are no cities with no problems," he noted.


The fact that the three levels of government - municipal, federal and state - support the River project is not "historic," said Nuzman.

The four days of the announcement of the Games in 2016, the chairman of the committee admitted feeling "different" to enter the climate of the election.

Nuzman is accompanied by the secretary-general of the application, Carlos Roberto Osorio, the communications director, Leonardo Gryner, and director of sports, Agberto Guimarães.

Danes prefer to travel to the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in 2016

Newspaper poll puts the city as the ideal place to watch the Games

Rafael Maranhão
Direct from Copenhagen
Agency / Reuters

The Politiken newspaper held a poll with the question: If you could choose the city you would like to travel to attend the Olympics in 2016, what would it be? Rio gave a good margin.

The Marvelous City won with 36%, with Madrid coming in second (29%). If there is a place where the Danes do not seem very interested in going is Tokyo, which ranked last, with only 16%. Chicago finished third with 20%.

The capital of Denmark, Copenhagen, is the headquarters of the 121st. session of the International Olympic Committee, which will set on 2 October to host the 2016 Games, and the XII Olympic Congress, which begins tomorrow and will discuss where changes and improvements to the Olympics.

Rio de Janeiro is the favorite to be chosen to host the 2016 Olympic Games. This is the conclusion of the site Around the Rings, specializing in Olympic Bid, which released its rankings on Monday. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) will make his choice on Friday in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Under the system of evaluation of the site, the river comes up with 84 points, one more than Chicago (USA). Madrid (ESP) and Tokyo (Japan) are tied at 80. In the previous ranking in June, the American city occupied the end of the ranking.

Another specialized site, the Games Bids, also puts the Rio de Janeiro as a favorite, with 61.61 points to 60.01 in Chicago.

See ranking of Around the Rings:

1 - Rio de Janeiro: 84 pt_set2 - Chicago: 83 pt_set3 - Madrid: 80 pt_set3 - Tokyo: 80 points

See ranking of Games Bids:

1 - Rio de Janeiro: 61.61 pt_set2 - Chicago: 60.01 pt_set3 - Tokyo: 59.20 pontos4 - Madrid: 57.80 points

There seems to be some question as to who owns the site called "Chicagoans for Rio". Some here were convinced it was a fraud perpetrated by someone in Rio, not a genuine grassroots Chicago effort.

The story that Chicago's Fox News affiliate has been asked not to run its TV report on the website (which takes for granted the website is legit) by the Chicago Olympic Committee is posted on the Drudge Report, not mentioning the controversy over who owns the website but rather suggesting a corrupt COC wishes to bury an embarrassing story. I saw this posted on a link from Drudge Report to Breitbart.com, which seems to suggest that ChicagoansforRio is indeed a legitimate Chicago effort, not a scam by someone in Rio. I can't not vouch for its accuracy, just putting it out there:


The website ChicagoansForRio.com is owned by a Kevin Lynch of Chicago according to the original public WhoIs records in DomainTools and public telephone records in AnyWho.

Unlike the work of Paris 2012 and Rio 2016, the eve of the election ...... is that the Rio 2016, even a favorite, still working behind the scenes .. London took the opportunity .......

Too bad Michael Jordan isnt going to represent Chicago. Might be the most dominating athlete in a sport ever, as well as one of the most recognizable people across the globe.

That would be the first I've heard of it. MJ has a selfish streak to him and as of last week it was reported he was not likely to go to Rio as he a supposed obligation to his basketball team of which he is a part owner (a rather BS excuse).

Ever since he retired he has been rather low key and doesn't do a lot of PR stuff unless it is for his own personal commerical reasons.

Not sure how much help he'll be in Rio. He'd be better off going to Denmark I reckon.

That is part of the plan, while the rest of go to Copenhagen MJ is secretly going to Rio in his submarine and sabotage the Rio committee headquarters and communications in order to create division and confusion in the Rio camp so that Obama can deal the deathblow.

Or MJ and his hot Cuban girlfriend will be getting drunk on caipirinhas on Ipanema beach for four days and make obscure bets with impoverished cabana boys playing horseshoes.

Just googled a little on it. Seems like he's not going - Danish news probably just aren't up to date with the US delegation. All they talk about is Obama

Think that he'll just be there to be there...maybe say a few words.
