Published March 29, 2013
NO OLYMPIC IMPACT: XINHUA wrote Rio de Janeiro Mayor Eduardo Paes "has denied the closure of the city's Olympic athletics stadium will affect preparations for the 2016 Games." Paes said, "We already have a lot of responsibilities ahead of the Olympics but luckily we are within the expected time frame and can handle the situation." Consorcio Engenhao, the building consortium responsible for the project, said that it is "collaborating with the local government to find a quick solution" (XINHUA, 3/28).
SERIOUS BUSINESS: REUTERS' Rodrigo Viga Gaier wrote engineers said the damage to the stadium "is serious." Rio government public works department RioUrbe President Armando Queiroga said, "We've received a report about the stadium and it did not come with any solutions attached. We need from 30 to 60 days to find the solution and after that we will have some perspective" (REUTERS, 3/27).
