The Olympics: Is Rio Ready To Host The Games?
The 2016 Olympic Games kick off tomorrow night! Is Rio ready to host them? Many would say no. We have heard for weeks now of how Rio is plagued with problems for athletes, spectators and officials. CBS Sports has compiled a list of the worst issues facing the city. Some of the obvious issues include Zika, water pollution and bad infrastructure. Other issues include that the Olympic village is not ready for the athletes, and they have to be placed in hotels. Possibly the worst issue is the air pollution. Researchers now believe that the air quality is worse than the water quality. Can all of these issues be resolved by tomorrow? Probably not. Either way, the opening ceremony for the Olympics is Friday at 7pm on NBC.
