CHICAGO PASSED OVER FOR THE OLYMPICS.

But Rio's preparations are crappy.
The rehabilitation of Rio's water was supposed to be a major benefit of infrastructure spending ahead of the Games, but the relevant sanitation projects are behind schedule; the city's mayor has called the failure to follow through on cleanup plans a "shame" and a "wasted opportunity."
In China, the sailors had to sail in algae.  At the time, I asked, "What's Chinese for Everything Turns to S***?" Rio's sailing venues.
