Rio De Janeiro 2016 Organizers To Confirm Site For Field Hockey, Rugby Sevens

A decision on where to hold the field hockey and rugby sevens during the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Games "will be officially rubber-stamped by the world governing bodies next month," according to Tom Degun of INSIDE THE GAMES. The Int'l Hockey Federation (FIH) met Rio 2016 organizers to discuss its Olympic venue "after it was moved from its scheduled home on the Olympic Park to the Deodoro Zone on the outskirts of the city." The plans were met with disapproval from the FIH, who believed having the venue so far away from where most of the action at the Games will be taking place "will have a negative impact on attendances and exposure" (INSIDE THE GAMES, 3/18).
