Athletes, coaches, and tourists were wary of traveling to the crime-riddled city, where, in addition, an outbreak of the Zika virus led to the withdrawal of a number of prominent athletes, including golfers Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth.
The waterways of the city were filled with debris and so polluted that the World Health Organization suggested that athletes using the open waters should avoid swallowing it, cover any exposed cuts with waterproof bandages, and shower as soon as they leave the site.

Cities may not invite any IOC member to visit nor may they send anything that could be construed as a gift. Nonetheless, bidding cities invest large sums in their PR and media programs in an attempt to indirectly influence the IOC members by garnering domestic support, support from sports media and general international media.
Ultimately, you are communicating with just people and each one has influencers and pressure groups but you are still speaking to no more than about 1, people, perhaps 5, in the broadest sense.
It is not just about getting ads out there but it is about a targeted and very carefully planned campaign. The final voting was held on 2 October , in Copenhagen with Madrid and Rio de Janeiro perceived as favourites to land the games.
Chicago and Tokyo were eliminated after the first and second rounds of voting, respectively, while Rio de Janeiro took a significant lead over Madrid heading into the final round.
The lead held and Rio de Janeiro was announced as host of Summer Olympics. On 26 June , it was reported on AroundTheRings. Renato Ciuchin was then appointed as COO.
Events took place at eighteen existing venues, nine new venues constructed specifically for the Games, and seven temporary venues. The same was done for the Pan American Games.
Of the 34 competition venues, eight underwent some permanent works, seven were totally temporary and nine were constructed as permanent legacy venues.
The athletes' village was said to be the largest in Olympic history. Fittings included about 80, chairs, 70, tables, 29, mattresses, 60, clothes hangers, 6, television sets and 10, smartphones.
The nine venues within the Olympic Park were:  . Rio's historical downtown underwent an urban waterfront revitalization project called Porto Maravilha.
The project aimed to redevelop the port area, increasing the city center's attractiveness and enhancing Rio's competitive position in the global economy.
It was due to open in April The Games required more than kilometers of security fencing. A 15, square meter warehouse in Barra da Tijuca in western Rio was used to assemble and supply the furniture and fittings for the Olympic Village.
A second warehouse of 90, square meters, located in Duque de Caxias near the roads that provide access to the venues, contained all the equipment needed for the sporting events.
The medals were produced by the Casa da Moeda do Brasil the Brazilian mint. The medals feature a wreath design on the front, and in keeping with tradition the obverse features Nike , the Greek goddess of victory.
Each medal was accompanied by a wooden carrying box. Medalists were also awarded a trophy in the shape of the Games' emblem. In May , an Associated Press article disclosed that more than athletes who had won medals at the Rio Olympics reported that their medals were showing some damage, including black spots, flaking, or surface degrading.
The Olympic flame was lit at the temple of Hera in Olympia on 21 April , the traditional start of the Greek phase of the torch relay. On 27 April the flame was handed over to the Brazilian organisers at a ceremony at the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens.
The torch relay visited more than Brazilian cities including all the 26 states capitals and the Brazilian Federal District , with the last part held in the city of Rio de Janeiro ,  lighting the cauldron during the Summer Olympics opening ceremony on 5 August.
Unpaid volunteers performed a variety of tasks before and during the Games. A target of 50, volunteers was set as early as When recruitment took place in , over , applications were received.
The volunteers wore clothing which included yellow polo shirts and jackets, beige trousers, white socks and green trainers which they collected from the Uniform Distribution and Accreditation Centre.
But many volunteers have stopped to due long working hours and one free meal a day. The ticket prices were announced on 16 September , all of which were sold in Brazilian reais BRL.
A total of 7. About 3. As an aspect of its bid, Rio's organizing committee planned to focus on sustainability and environmental protection as a theme of these Games, going on to dub them a "Green Games for a Blue Planet".
However, some of these projects were met with delays or faced with economic shortfalls, which led some critics to believe that Rio would not be able to accomplish them.
The focus on environmental protection also influenced the implementation of certain Olympic protocols: the Olympic cauldron was designed to be smaller than previous iterations in order to reduce emissions, and used a kinetic sculpture to enhance its appearance in lieu of a larger body of flames.
The athletes were not presented with flowers during medal ceremonies, as had been traditionally done at prior Olympics although flowers were still used as part of the staging of medal presentations.
Organisers considered the practice to be wasteful since they were often thrown away, and "would struggle to survive in the tropical Brazilian climate" if kept.
The podiums were also designed so that their materials could be recycled to make furniture. The Future Arena , host of handball competitions, was designed as a modular temporary venue whose components can be reconstructed to build schools.
Portions of the opening ceremony were also dedicated to the issue of climate change. The ceremony also featured the inaugural presentation of the Olympic Laurel , an honor bestowed by the IOC to those that have made "significant achievements in education, culture, development and peace through sport", to Kipchoge "Kip" Keino.
The Olympic cauldron was lit by Vanderlei Cordeiro de Lima , the men's marathon bronze medalist at the Summer Olympics who was also awarded the Pierre de Coubertin medal for sportsmanship by the IOC after being attacked by a spectator and losing his lead.
The Summer Olympic programme featured 28 sports encompassing events. The number of events in each discipline is noted in parentheses.
In April , the IOC began accepting applications for two new sports to be introduced to the Olympic programme, which included baseball and softball which were dropped in , karate , squash , golf , roller sports , and rugby union all applied to be included.
Formal presentations were held for the IOC executive board in June In August, the executive board initially gave its approval to rugby sevens —a seven-player version of rugby union—by a majority vote, thus removing baseball, roller sports, and squash from contention; leaving golf, karate, and rugby sevens.
A new system was in place at this session; a sport now needed only a simple majority from the full IOC committee for approval rather than the two-thirds majority previously required.
The International Sailing Federation announced in May that windsurfing would be replaced at the Olympics by kitesurfing ,  but this decision was reversed in November.
All National Olympic Committees qualified at least one athlete. As host nation, Brazil has received automatic entry for some sports including in all cycling disciplines and six places for weightlifting events.
The Summer Olympics were the first games in which Kosovo and South Sudan were eligible to participate.
Bulgarian and Russian weightlifters were banned from Rio Olympics for numerous anti-doping violations. Kuwait was banned in October for the second time in five years over government interference in the country's Olympic committee.
In the previous Summer Olympic Games , refugees were ineligible to compete because of their inability to represent their home NOCs.
During the Games some countries and continents had a national house. These temporary meeting places for supporters, athletes and other followers were located throughout Rio de Janeiro.
Source . This is currently based on the schedule released on the same day as ticket sales began, 31 March Twenty-seven world records and ninety-one Olympic records were set during the Summer Olympics.
The records were set in archery, athletics, canoeing, cycling track, modern pentathlon, rowing, shooting, swimming and weightlifting.
The top ten listed NOCs by number of gold medals are listed below. Host nation Brazil finished in 13th place with a total of 19 medals 7 gold, 6 silver, and 6 bronze.
These scheduling practices were influenced primarily by United States broadcast rightsholder NBC — NBC's substantial rights fees are one of the major sources of revenue for the IOC, therefore it has allowed the network to have influence on event scheduling to maximize U.
Eastern Time Zone , certain marquee events were scheduled to occur during U. This practice was also to the benefit of Globo: a Brazilian critic noted that the network very rarely pre-empts its primetime telenovelas , as they are among the highest-rated programs in the country.
The Parade of Flags followed shortly after a choir of 27 children, representing the states of Brazil , sang the Brazilian national anthem.
This figure included sports-related costs, that is, i operational costs incurred by the organizing committee for the purpose of staging the Games, of which the largest components were technology, transportation, workforce, and administration costs, while other operational costs included security, catering, ceremonies, and medical services, and ii direct capital costs incurred by the host city and country or private investors to build the competition venues, the Olympic village, international broadcast center, and media and press center, which were required to host the Games.
Indirect capital costs were not included, such as for road, rail, or airport infrastructure, or for hotel upgrades or other business investment incurred in preparation for the Games but not directly related to staging the Games.
Olympic Broadcasting Services served as the host broadcaster for these Games; produced from a total of seven mobile units, OBS distributed 40, hours of television footage and 60, hours of digital footage of the Games to its international rightsholders; for the first time in Olympic history, digital-oriented footage exceeded the amount of television-oriented footage.
Additionally, expanding upon a degree trial at the Winter Youth Olympics , 85 hours of video content were originated in degree virtual reality formats.
There will be a huge increase in the amount of Olympic action broadcast, both during and outside Games time, and Brazilians will have more choice of how, when and where they follow their Olympic Games.
Following the conclusion of the games the International Olympic Committee in November announced the winners of the Golden rings in six categories for the best broadcast coverage of the games.
It was produced by Geoff Johnson. The production for the cycling road race and Sailing came second and third. The next category was best Olympic feature.
The third category was The Best Athlete Profile. TV Globo went one better than the previous category coming second with their profile of Izaquias Queiroz.
The official mascots of the Summer Olympics and Paralympics were unveiled on 24 November They were created by Sao Paulo -based animation company Birdo.
Brand director Beth Lula stated that the mascots were intended to reflect the diversity of Brazil's culture and people.
The emblem was also designed to have a three-dimensional form, which designer Fred Gelli claimed made it the "first 3D logo in the history of the Olympics.
The logo has been noted as evoking Henri Matisse 's painting Dance. There were also allegations by the Colorado-based Telluride Foundation that the logo had been plagiarized from its own.
While also consisting of several figures linked in motion, the Telluride Foundation logo contains four figures. This is not the first time that the foundation had alleged plagiarism of its logo by a Brazilian event; in , the linked figures element had been copied for the logo of Carnival celebrations in Salvador.
Gelli defended the allegations, stating that the concept of figures linked in embrace was not inherently original as it was "an ancient reference" and "in the collective unconscious ".
Gelli cited Dance as an influence of the logo's concept, and stated that the designers had intentionally aimed to make the interpretation of the concept as dissimilar to others as possible.
The lead-up to these Games was marked by controversies , including Brazil's political and economic crisis ; the Zika virus epidemic and the significant pollution in the Guanabara Bay ; and a doping scandal involving Russia , which affected the participation of its athletes in the Games.
However, nobody competing in or attending the Olympics contracted the Zika virus  and the Games took place normally, without any major incident.
In , Operation Car Wash , an investigation by the Federal Police of Brazil , uncovered unprecedented money laundering and corruption at the state-controlled oil company Petrobras.
In early , a series of protests against alleged corruption by the government of President Dilma Rousseff began in Brazil, triggered by revelations that numerous politicians were involved in the Petrobras affair.
On 12 May, President Rousseff was stripped of her powers and duties for days, after an impeachment vote in the Federal Senate , thus Vice President Michel Temer acted as acting president during the Games.
The money was allegedly paid to Lamine Diack and his son Papa Massata who was a member of the IOC at the time of the alleged payment which was three days before the vote in All three were charged with money laundering along with the former governor of Rio state Sergio Cabral , who was already in prison for money laundering offences at the time, Brazilian businessman Arthur Soares and ex Brazilian Olympic Committee chief Leonardo Gryner.
All six were charged with running a criminal organization, money laundering and violating currency laws in their own native countries. An outbreak of the mosquito-borne Zika virus in Brazil raised fears regarding its potential impact on athletes and visitors.
To prevent puddles of stagnant water that allow mosquitoes to breed, organisers announced plans to perform daily inspections of Olympic venues.
In May , a group of physicians and scientists sent an open letter to the World Health Organization , calling upon them to, according to co-author Arthur Caplan , have "an open, transparent discussion of the risks of holding the Olympics as planned in Brazil".
The WHO dismissed the request, stating that "cancelling or changing the location of the Olympics will not significantly alter the international spread of Zika virus", and that there was "no public health justification" for postponing them.
Some athletes did not attend the Games because of the epidemic. The Guanabara Bay , whose waters were used for sailing and windsurfing competitions, is heavily polluted.
Among the chief causes of the pollution are uncollected trash fed into the bay via polluted rivers and slums along the coast. Pollution of the Guanabara has been a long-term issue.
Officials promised at the Earth Summit in that they would begin to address the pollution but previous attempts to do so have been insufficient.
As an aspect of their bid for the Games, Rio once again committed to making efforts towards cleaning the bay. Rio's crime problems also received renewed attention after it was awarded the Games; Mayor Paes stated that the city was facing "big issues" in heightening security, but that such concerns and issues were presented to the IOC throughout the bidding process.
The governor of the state of Rio de Janeiro also highlighted the fact that London faced security problems, with a terrorist attack occurring just one day after it was awarded the Summer Olympics.
The estimate was that 5, men of the National Public Security Force and 22, military officers 14, Army ; 5, Navy and 1, of the Brazilian Air Force , in addition to the fixed quota of Rio January, would act during the Olympic Games.
On 21 July , two weeks before the scheduled start of the Games, the Brazilian Federal Police broke up an Islamic jihadist terrorist ring by arresting 12 people.
Media attention began growing in December when German broadcaster ARD reported on state-sponsored doping in Russia, comparing it to doping in East Germany.
In June , they reported that they were unable to fully carry out their work and noted intimidation by armed Federal Security Service FSB agents.
McLaren's investigation found corroborating evidence, concluding in a report published in July that the Ministry of Sport and the FSB had operated a "state-directed failsafe system" using a "disappearing positive [test] methodology" DPM from "at least late to August ".
