The Rio Olympics cost the authorities $ 9.77 billion. It was assumed that the Olympic Park in Rio de Janeiro will host major sports events for many years to come and serve the development of sports in the country. But in fact, everything fell into disrepair only six months after the Olympics. Our site will tell you why everything fell into disrepair and show the remains of the main sporting event.
This is what the Olympic Water Stadium looked like last summer. On its construction have spent 50 million dollars.
And in this state he is now.
The sports ministry claims the destruction was caused by a political crisis. Construction contracts were concluded with private individuals, and after the change of government, all agreements were terminated.
It was thought to dismantle the pool, but the work was stopped.
The famous Maracanã stadium, which hosted the opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympics.
After the end of the games, the stadium was closed, and there was no trace of the green lawn.
However, it should be borne in mind that the longer the stadiums are in this state, the more expensive their restoration will be. The government simply does not have money for repairs, so now the authorities are limited to guards who protect buildings from looters.
The stadium was ransacked in a couple of months.
The vandals pulled out the chairs and took away the TVs.
The experts, however, are not surprised. They say that it could not be otherwise: the authorities saved on literally every little thing. Therefore, after only 6 months, the coatings peeled off and everything was overgrown with rust.
Six months ago, this golf course was emerald white.
