2016 Olympics Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro proposes to hold all sporting events within the city limits—apart from the football tournaments which would be held in the cities of Belo Horizonte, Brasília, Salvador and São Paulo —making the Games more compact and technically feasible. The competition venues will be located in four Olympic zones—Barra, Copacabana, Deodoro, and Maracanã—and divided in seven Olympic clusters—Barra, Copacabana, Deodoro, Flamengo, João Havelange, Lagoa and Maracanã—with four Olympic precints—Maracanã, Olympic Park, Riocentro and X Park. The Olympic and Paralympic Village, the International Broadcast Centre (IBC) and the Main Press Centre (MPC) will be located at the Barra zone, which is the core of the project and includes the largest number of competition venues.
Rio de Janeiro’s competition venues meet the International Federation’s (IFs) technical requirements and both IOC and IPC standards, and align with the City Master Plan and legacy strategy. Most venues are already operational, recently developed or renovated. In addition, Rio de Janeiro and the four proposed cities to hold soccer competitions—Brasília, Belo Horizonte, Salvador and São Paulo—were chosen to host the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Rio de Janeiro will build the Summer Paralympics, upon the experience of hosting the III Parapan American Games—considered “the best ever” by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and the Americas Paralympic Committee (APC)—as well as many other international competitions for athletes with disabilities. - via Wikipedia
