Rio 2016: Committee will choose the host city brings together politicians, athletes and princes

Posted on 30/09/2009 at 23h47m
O Globo

RIO - The International Olympic Committee (IOC) on Friday chooses the city that will host the 2016 Olympics is an electoral college eccentric. Among the 105 members, there are prime ministers, ex-super Olympians, a princess, a general of dictatorship and a minister who has coached the national soccer team of his country. Representatives of countries do not have voting rights and, therefore, two members of the U.S., one from Spain, two from Japan and two from Brazil (Nuzman and João Havelange), not participate in the choice. The IOC president, Jacques Rouge, only votes in case of a tie.


The formation of this respected collegiate indications of many sources. Today, the IOC is divided into four groups. One of them should be, according to the rules, composed of up to 15 active players - elected by their own colleagues during the Olympics. The second should be up to 15 presidents of sports federations. The third is being attended by 15 presidents of the Olympic committees and the last, largest, should have to take up to 70 members with no specific affiliation - no more than one country. It is this group coming out the eccentricities.

Several nobles are among the chosen. The votes of tomorrow will come from kings, princes, sheiks and the like. Henri Albert Gabriel Feliz Marie Guillaume, or simply Henri, for example, is Grand Duke of Luxembourg. Since Albert Alexandre Louis Pierre Grimaldi, the Prince of Monaco and former athlete bobsled (winter sport), with five Olympics (1988, 1992, 1994, 1998 and 2002) in the curriculum. Another prominent noble and unique curriculum is Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah, a former oil minister and Information of Kuwait and the role of accumulated coach football in the country in qualifying for World Cup 2006. Her team was eliminated.

For a city is required to win a simple majority of votes, or half plus one. If no city reaches this percentage, which has the fewest votes is eliminated. New round begins until there are only two. The vote is secret, done through an electronic device.

Cabral warns: "Jobs in Rio has a lot of passion, but also a lot of reason"

Writing SRZD | Rio 2016 | 29/09/2009 13:43


Governor of the State of Rio de Janeiro Sérgio Cabral and Mayor Eduardo Paes


Gov. Sergio Cabral has reinforced the campaign slogan of Rio 2016, when he attended the news conference on Tuesday, the Skt Petri Hotel in Copenhagen (Denmark). For Cabral, the application of the state capital "has a lot of passion, but also has good reason," which was proven in the report of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced on September 2. He said the project in Rio de Janeiro was the only considered the highest technical quality.

"In line with the spirit of President Obama, because Obama is us. Give us a chance to do in Rio, Brazil, and the first time in the South American continent, the Olympics, because, yes, we can," warned governor.

Mayor Eduardo Paes, who also attended the interview on the sidelines of the governor stated that, despite the expectation before the election, the relationship between the rulers of the candidate cities is the best.

"The mood among the candidates is warmth. There is no fighting or attack between the towns. We are competing in the Olympic spirit. Rio dispute with the Olympic spirit. I combined with the mayor of Madrid to eat a paella in Spain after all finish. We also want to go to Tokyo to eat good sushi. We will take all the mayors to Rio to eat beans and drink caipirinha. And together we will visit Chicago, "said Paes. However, after viewing the images from the state capital and the video of the year in Rio, the mayor showed all his pride to represent the city.

"With all due respect to Chicago, Tokyo and Madrid, Rio is without doubt the most wonderful place in the world. Every time we show pictures of the city, our qualities, the possibility of transformation that the Olympics mean to Rio de Janeiro, it is difficult for competitors. It's a great honor to be representative of all Texans at a time like this. I'm sure the gaming experience in a city as special as ours will change forever the Olympic Movement "said the mayor.

Chicago is equally as beautiful as Rio, so you can't say you have an advantage there. Maybe not as much natural beauty, but man-made beauty(although there is no other large city in the world that has blue skies like Chicago does, nor as stunning of a lake).

Chicago is one of the most beautiful cities in world, from the ground and air. You really have to go there to see it for yourself. Few non American's seem to understand that here, or anywhere else for that matter....

My favorite is Tokyo. Although any of these cities will host a spectacular games. I dunno about the legacies though. Games held in the US seem to be more profitable and use better macroeconomics.

All 4 cities are beautiful in their own ways, but to say Rio is MORE beautiful is simply not true!

loving this thread... but lets not start competing. All cities are stunning, there's a very good choice this year, a very high standard that each city should be proud of having upped - and whoever wins Im sure will be a marvellous setting.
