What Happens To Olympics Venues After The Games End?
The world is set to tune into the 2016 Olympics in Rio. It will surely be a spectacular event. But what will happen to all the infrastructure erected for the games after the Olympics wrap up?
If past Olympics are any indicator, the facilities will just sit there and moulder, unused. Brazil is also in the midst of very trying economic times. Many Brazilians see the Olympics as an unnecessary expenditure of public money.
They may have a point. For past countries that have played host to the Olympics, they may not get much out of it in the long run. These Olympic facilities were all abandoned, and have not been put to any useful end since.
