IOC Coordination Commission In Rio To Help Search For Competition Venues

The IOC Coordination Commission for the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Games arrived in the host city to "help in the search" for where to play five Olympic sports, according to Vinicius Konchinski of UOL. Rio Local Organizing Committee CEO Sidney Levy said that "the deadline for the site of all Olympic sports" was supposed to be at the end of '12. However, the committee will continue discussions with int'l federations and possible competition sites to find appropriate venues for field hockey, rugby sevens, fencing, basketball and diving (UOL, 2/20).
