Where can i watch the olympics online
12 days before the Olympic Games in Rio, the Organizing Committee received the first public denunciation by the State of the Olympic village: Olympic Committee from Australia (AOC, for its acronym in English) revealed serious problems, considered that it was “uninhabitable” in the short term and moved to his delegation to nearby hotels. “Those problems include problems of plumbing, cables exposed, stairs to dark and soils dirty with the need of a cleaning mass”, explained a spokesman of the AOC, according to luggage in the Sydney Morning Herald.
“There are serious problems with the water and you see puddles on the ground and in areas with cables,” they added from the Australian delegation. “We decided to do a stress test, using all faucets, toilets, light. But the system failed. “The water fell by the walls and had a strong odor to gas in some departments of the Villa”, explained. In addition, met delegations from Britain and New Zealand suffered similar problems.
By its part, the Committee Organizer decided to send large teams of cleaning and personal of service, but not could tell when will be solved them inconvenient in the Villa Olympic.
The State of the Olympic village confirms some of the worst fears having over the lack of river in preparation for the games. All Olympic cities complete work late, but according to the first visitors, it is already “too late”.
OK for it security. More beyond of them critical by the State of the Villa, from the AOC said be satisfied by what looked to level security both in those departments Olympic as in river of Janeiro in general.
There are decisions that make a mandate, moments of which cannot be. It is likely that for the President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) that day everything changes it was yesterday how to watch the olympics, Sunday, July 24, 2016.
Thomas Bach had a bomb in his hands and deactivate it wasn’t nothing simple, but passing them to the sports federations the decision of what to do with Russia in Rio 2016, the German ended up enhancing the problem: there is not a single pump, there are dozens. Are many, and the most runs with the system of action delayed. They may explode in the middle of the games, and in the years to come.
Six weeks back, during an interview in his office in Lausanne, the nation you asked to Bach if its excellent relationship with the President Russian, Vladimir Putin, not was a problem at the time of take a decision on the issue. “Is not about relationships – Bach said, but take a fair decision.” Month and a half that happened from then check out important shadows of doubt about the answer.
Distributed among 27 international federations the decision of if he is ejected or not to Russia of the Olympic Games is a very efficient way of diminishing the importance of the IOC and shrink the figure of its President. In that interview, Bach spoke of “very good work six and a half years” with Russia prior to the games of winter 2014. Sounds like sarcasm: it was in Sochi, where the Russian secret services drilled the laboratory wall anti-doping adulterate samples to allow doped athletes to compete without problems. It is difficult to find a clearer demonstration of the doping as State policy. It was in the athletics, admitted the IOC, that let to river without athletes Russian. Only in athletics?
The answer lies in the hands of federations, 11 days after the start of the games, they have no time or means to make decisions. A disaster for some games as them of Rio 2016, that already have enough problems. They didn’t need another. Them Russian that compete-many of them clean, surely-will be regarded with mistrust by rival and spectators, while athletes with legitimate aspirations must content is with the hope of that, within some years, happen what is is giving today with them games of Beijing 2008 and London 2012: them controls retroactive detected tens and tens of doped that were invisible for them tests of then.
And a data for the astonishment: the athlete Russian Yulia Stepanova, that was which gave them data key to start the research of the Agency world anti-doping (loves), not may go to River by have given positive years back. The IOC that Bach, chairs that Yes, invites her as a spectator to the games with all expenses paid.
