I feel like Rio's presentation is almost avoiding the physical part of the olympic bid, and instead going ahead 100% on emotions. We'll see how that pans out.

Been a long time coming. Off to a hopeful celibration in five minutes. Congrats to the eventual winner and good luck with your games. Whoever gets the right is sure to throw a good one.

Rio puts its serious face on for 2016 Olympic bid
Friday, 02 October 2009


By David Owen in Copenhagen

October 2 - Carnival on celluloid it was not. Anyone expecting the Rio de Janeiro presentation to be a riot of tropical colour performed to a throbbing soundtrack will have been disappointed.



Instead, what we had was a sober, serious affair designed to persuade assembled International Olympic Committee (IOC) dignitaries that the Brazilian city would make a thoroughly trustworthy partner - and that it was time for the Games to come to South America.


The closest to a note of levity, as I recall, came in the opening observations of Joao Havelange, the ex-boss of FIFA who is now the longest-serving IOC member with 46 years to his name.

Havelange invited his colleagues to join him in Rio in 2016…for his 100th birthday.

Another surprise to some: not a word from Pelé.

The great Brazilian footballer was there alright, but did no more than wave.

Instead his story was sketched in, with a few deft brushstrokes, by Isabel Swan, a young and photogenic Beijing sailing medallist.


President Lula, following in the wake of the current resident of the White House, was passion and pugnacity personified.


"I honestly believe it is Brazil’s time," he said.


"Among the top ten economies of the world, Brazil is the only country that has not hosted the Olympic and Paralympic Games.


"Among the countries that today compete to host the Games, we are the only one that has never had this honour.


"For the others, it will be just one more Games."


The other three cities may well beg to differ on that last point, but there was no doubting the emotion with which he asserted, during what was a lengthy and polished intervention, that it was "time to light the Olympic cauldron in a tropical country".


For me though, even Lula was upstaged rather by Speaker Number Five: one Henrique Meirelles.


As possibly not many of you will know, Mr Meirelles, the embodiment of sobriety – and hence the antithesis of what most of us expect from Rio – is Governor of the Brazilian Central Bank.


His role, as well as ramming home the message that Brazil would be a copper-bottomed partner, was to tell IOC members – many still living in economies mired in recession – that Brazil was booming.


"We have seen growth of almost 8 per cent in the second quarter," the good Governor told us with an air of unimpeachable authority.

"We have recorded our lowest ever unemployment rate for the month of July.”

You get the idea.


Besides this, and a slinky, understated bossa nova soundtrack, the presentation was notable (to we Olympic junkies) for skilful insertion of little touches designed to pick up the odd vote here and there: a volley of Spanish from Rio Mayor, Eduardo Paes; a group of Middle Eastern gentlemen in headcloths riding a cable car.

That sort of thing.

In this way, the fingerprints of the ground-breaking London 2012 presentation four years ago were in evidence.


Did I also detect a sideways swipe at Chicago – perceived by many as its main rival – in the heavy emphasis on the city’s incomparable beaches, both in the first film and a lingering final image of the five-ring logo emblazoned on a stretch of sand? (The Windy City has stated that its athletes' Village would have a private beach.)


"You think you’ve got beaches?", the image seemed to be saying.

"We’ve got beaches."


Will it be enough to push the home of Copacabana and the Sugar Loaf over the line ahead of its rivals?


Not long to wait now.
