Olympic Chief Says Brazil Government Must Act On Rio Games Preparations

Association of Summer Olympic Int'l Federations President Francesco Ricci Bitti "has called for urgent action to resolve the critical delays facing the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro and accused the Brazilian government of failing to support the project," according to Stephen Wilson of the AP. Bitti said that "Rio's troubled preparations are reaching a crisis stage and putting some sports venues in jeopardy." The Italian said "we need to act" immediately or else the situation will become "very serious" and force some sports to consider backup venue plans. He said Rio's organizing committee has "no leverage" with the government (AP, 4/8).
