I'm not talking about the site's news page, I'km talking about Rio supporters in their forums. It's weird how differently they saw this compared to Brazilians here.
Ok, anywaym that is only supporters/hatters opinion, im sure ioc members thinksotherwise.

Yeh, but they're not sure of that at all. I missed the presentation and I'm not sure who to believe. Some are saying 10/10, others are saying it's a trainwreck. It's confusing. Who knows what the IOC thinks?

If that is the case then they wouldn't have been invited to the party. Any of the four is worthy of being nominated.

That place is fueled with alienated people, from ALL SIDES. It shouldn't be a parameter of anything at all, specially since it almost never seems to make a right prediction...

A good five year or even ten year economic run doesn't make a fortified bullet proof economy be it a Brazilian, American, or British one.
About the last US/Worldwide crisis I can afirm the the average Brazilian would not evenknow that the world was in crisis. The effects here were minimum. What happened was just our economy stop growing in high numbers. Brazil did a verygood job with Countries´international reserves. For sure we have money to host it.

I could see different levels of good or OK but anything resembling a train wreck I really saw no evidence of.

Ok I'm really upset I missed Chicago's presentation.
Tokyo: Didn't rate it before today, but I was blown away by their commitment to infrastructure, sport, professionalism and the Olympic movement.
Rio: My favourite but unfortunately I'm one of those underwhelmed. I felt the female speaker did an amazing job and had me in tears. She embodied the Olympic spirit. Unfortunately it didn't gel after her. I wanted to know more about the venues.
Madrid: After being surprised by Tokyo...who knows!
Oh and I'm from Australia. You don't get much further away and unbiased than that!

I see your point. And I have to admit I myself have many concerns on Brazilian Politian’s (and population in general) ability to make as much profit out of this opportunity as they actually could. But Rio does feel willing to take that risk.

The Madrid video isn't bad. I have no idea what in the heck the English voice over that goes along with it is all about though. A rather odd accent.
