The summer Olympics are always a global hit. It’s one of the few occasions that everyone in the world unites in celebrating common events of true, authentic athleticism and cheers on competitors from teams all over the world, regardless of personal connection.
When the Olympics come around, we can all put aside our differences for a few weeks and have good, old fashioned, healthy, family friendly fun.
However, anyone that’s watched or heard of any part of the summer Olympics taking place currently in Rio de Janeiro knows that nothing about this global event has been smooth-sailing. While the Brazilian city was overjoyed to receive the honor to host the 2016 summer games, they’ve struggled to prepare every step of the way and step up to the demands of the monumental event.
If the municipality had any idea how ill-prepared they were and would continue to be for the Olympic games, they might have resigned their hosting rights.
