According to the Minister of Sports Orlando Silva Jr., Lula has the help of translators from English and French to talk with representatives from five continents will participate in the vote.

"Our enthusiasm and belief that the Rio de Janeiro can win this race are reinforced by this positive impact by the international Olympic community," the minister told reporters, on Thursday at the hotel which serves as the basis for the Brazilian delegation in Copenhagen.

"The contacts of yesterday and today showed that the Olympic community understood the message of Rio, the message of the Games as a tool for the development of Brazil as an instrument of transformation of the city," he added.

Rio, who is quoted by specialized sites in choices as Olympic favorite next to Chicago, put his hope to hold the Games for the first time after two failed attempts in a good technical report made by the IOC last month.

However, now there is a perception that the IOC voters are in favor of Brazil's candidacy for their ability to assist in the development of Brazil as a whole, according to the minister.

"What I can say is that they are very productive meetings with voters," he said.

In particular dispute with Chicago and the U.S. president, Barack Obama, Lula spared no efforts to use the time more in Copenhagen than the U.S., which will come only hours before the vote.

In his only commitment the day away from the voters of the IOC, told a news conference at 8 o'clock, the President also took a stick made famous in the world for Obama to defend the Games in Brazil.

"This time we look at the world and say 'yes we can and we will make these Olympics,'" said Bush, repeating the slogan "yes we can" campaign that put him the White House.

Another key member of the lobby of Brazil, the Central Bank president, Henrique Meirelles, reaffirmed the financial guarantees for the Games in the city and praised as a positive application of the good economic situation of Brazil after the financial crisis.
"Brazil today is an economic situation very comfortable. Brazil faced a crisis and out of the crisis in a very strong," he said.

Analysts said the impact of the Olympics host city will weigh in choice

Maria Luisa Cavalcanti

BBC Brazil in London




The renewal of derelict areas will be considered by the IOC

The impact of the 2016 Olympic Games will have on the future of the host city should be a determining factor in the vote on Friday by delegates of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for choosing between Rio de Janeiro, Chicago, Madrid and Tokyo, experts interviewed by the BBC Brazil.

"In recent polls, as he chose London to host the 2012 Games, the IOC has shown that legacy has become increasingly important," said Andrew Thornley, a professor of urban planning and an expert on Olympic legacy from the London School of Economics .

"What is important in the decision on Friday is not only how the city intends to hold two weeks of the Olympics, but as she plans to benefit the long term."

These benefits, according to Thornley, would not only improve the infrastructure and transport, but also the renewal of derelict areas, the ability to attract more business and inspire new generations to play sports.

For him, in applications where the role of government is greater, the legacy for the people is also higher. "This is what happened in Barcelona, home of the 1992 Olympics, where the event spurred the construction of a ring road, improved public transport and the renewal of an area that was completely abandoned," he said.

"Since American cities in general have the bulk of support coming from private enterprise, which means the land and works back to the private sector after the Games."

Community

For Terri Byers, Professor of Sport Management at the University of Coventry and co-director of the Center for International Business of Sport (CIBS, its acronym in English), government support is important but the success of the Games depends on today to take into account also the views of all groups involved.

"For the Olympics to work, she can not depend solely on what the politicians or businessmen want. Citizens, residents of areas that will be affected, the group of disabled people ... all they have to be heard, "he explains.

According to Byers, Athens is an example. "The authorities did not think what to do with the stadiums and arenas after the Games, did not hear the population. Today most of them are empty. "

"Think of the people and the legacy was important part of the winning proposal in London," says the teacher.

Policy

According to analysts, London ended up inspiring the cities competing for 2016 also the strategy adopted to get the votes of IOC members.

The decision in 2012, four years ago, the then British Prime Minister Tony Blair was personally to Singapore.

"Blair came days before and kept very discreet encounters with members of the Committee," says Gordon Farquhar, an expert on the Olympics BBC Radio 5. "His presence there helped a lot to win London. And now Vladimir Putin did the same for Sochi, Russia, which was eventually chosen to host the Winter Games in 2014. "

On Thursday, President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva is to meet with IOC members in a hotel in Copenhagen.

On Friday, he makes a speech on application of the River

Also on Friday, the president of the United States, Barack Obama, should come to the Danish capital only to attend the presentation of Chicago.

King Juan Carlos of Spain, the Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Zapatero and Prime Minister of Japan, Yukio Hatoyama, are also in Copenhagen to support Madrid and Tokyo, respectively.

In Copenhagen, the sports idol seek votes for the Rio

Copenhagen prepares to host the choice of the Olympic Games
You'd think the Olympics is already here: Copenhagen has become a port of dedicated athletes, each one trying to give more prestige to the candidacy of his country. The constellation Brazilian preferred hotel Saint Petri, near the center of the Danish capital, today the site since the Congress of the International Olympic Committee - which will define the site of the next Olympics.

Idol Gustavo Kuerten's tennis queen of the basketball, Hortense, the Olympic champion Torben Grael sail to one of the protagonists in the generation of silver in volleyball 84, Bernard: all go there as soon as he was dubbed the headquarters of Brazil .

But Pele is the king who is undoubtedly more flattered. Since the media accreditation, officials of the organization of the event has boasted of having cross-shocked, or even seen the undisputed idol of Brazilian football, perhaps the one who embodies the most powerful propaganda to bring the games to the land of football.

- Not believed when I saw Pele, a few meters from me, but he was there. As he has no equal, and never will have.

The report is Konrad, one of those responsible for the registration of journalists arriving at all times to cover the vote to elect, on Friday, the city that will host the 2016 Olympics.


On the streets, flags of Spain, the United States, Japan and, of course, of Brazil, are seen at all times, carried by the delegations and lobbyists of the sport. Madrid, Chicago, Tokyo and Rio de Janeiro fight this battle, which will go on the election ballot as of 12:10 pm (GMT).

The wonderful city has been appointed as the favorite in recent days, but the truth is that the decision is uncertain.

New Poll Places Chicago Ahead In 2016 Race
Chicago 2016 Team Hopes President Obama Will Be Wildcard To For Windy City Win


COPENHAGEN (CBS) ― With barely a day left until the final decision on 2016 Olympic host city, a new poll places Chicago at the head of the pack.

Chicago came out ahead of Rio de Janeiro in the poll by InsideTheGames.biz, which received votes from nearly 150,000 people from around the world. Chicago received a total of 65,749 votes while Rio got 63,823.

InsideTheGames.biz says experts are calling the 2016 host city race the "closest contest in the history of the bidding process."

"This really is too close to call and it could go either way tomorrow," InsideTheGames.biz publisher and editor Duncan Mackay said in a news release. "Both Chicago and Rio would undoubtedly stage fantastic Games and it is a shame that there has to be a loser."

IOC voters met at a Copenhagen hotel on Wednesday, and many also insisted the race is just too close to call.

The final vote is expected to take the maximum of three hours. IOC voters are notoriously unpredictable, with sentimentality, emotion and politics all playing big parts in their decision.

Meanwhile, as the International Olympic Committee prepares to select a host city in Copenhagen, Chicago Olympic athletes stepped up Thursday morning and talked about what getting the games would mean for them. Former Olympians including Bart Conner and NBA star David Robinson said they will be lobbying members of the IOC for Chicago's bid, highlighting the many benefits for the athletes.

On Thursday, CBS 2 Chief Correspondent Jay Levine said the atmosphere in the lobby of the Copenhagen Marriott Hotel was one of organized frenzy, or disciplined chaos, with IOC members being lobbied by representatives of the four candidate cities.

With less than 24 hours until the vote, the Chicago 2016 bid committee was pulling out all the stops on Thursday to bring the Olympics to the city.

Levine said it was an unbelievable sight in Copenhagen as hundreds of Chicagoans -- all dressed in blue and orange -- waved orange bandanas at a boat carrying International Olympic Committee members to the opening ceremony Thursday evening.

Chicagoans have been all over Copenhagen all week long, including at a bicycle race through downtown Copenhagen. Meantime, many of the athletes who came to support the bid were talking about what the impact would be from President Barack Obama visiting Copenhagen to present the closing speech for Chicago's final pitch on Friday.

"This is about the honor of hosting the world," said basketball Hall of Famer and gold medal-winning Dream Team member David Robinson. "And this is about giving a platform for every athlete and every story to be told and I think we can do that."

Gold medal gymnast Bart Conner said, "For a short period of time, the world kind of stopping and watching in Copenhagen as to what happens."

Jerry Colangelo, co-founder of the Chicago Bulls, owner of the Phoenix Suns and USA Basketball national director, said, "We must be humble, we must show respect and I would hope that tomorrow Chicago is the winner."

Alphonse Gabriel "Al" Capone (January 17, 1899 – January 25, 1947) was an American gangster who led a crime syndicate dedicated to smuggling and bootlegging of liquor and other illegal activities during the Prohibition Era of the 1920s and 1930s.

Born in Brooklyn to Southwestern Italian immigrants Gabriele and Teresina Capone, Capone began his career in Brooklyn before moving to Chicago and becoming the boss of the criminal organization known as the Chicago Outfit – though his business card reportedly described him as a used furniture dealer.[1]

Although he was never successfully convicted of racketeering charges, Capone's criminal career ended in 1931, when he was indicted and convicted by the federal government for income-tax evasion.
