Rio De Janeiro 2016 Olmpic Games

Rio De Janeiro has won the bid will host the 2016 Olympics, it will be the first city in South American to host Olympic Games.

The president of Brazil Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva made an impassioned plea to the International Olympic Committee in Copenhagen, reminding them it would be a great thing for the Olympics and for mankind, to have the Olympic games hosted, for the first time in South America. It would not be just for Brazil but for the whole continent. This would address the imbalance of where the games have been hosted. Rio De Janeiro ill be ready to host the historic 2016 Olympic games

President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Rio 2016 bid President Carlos Arthur Nuzman and  the great Brazilain footballer Pele were all ecstatic when the news was announced that Rio De Janeiro was to Host the 2016 Games.

Brazilians round the world rejoiced and the street of Rio exploded with music, dancing and people celebrating in a massive street party

The announcement by International Olympic Committee was made Friday evening from the Bella Conference Centre in Copenhagen, Denmark, that Rio De Janeiro, Brazil will host the 2016 games, beating Madrid into second place.

Chicago and Tokyo were also selected to the shortlist but did not make it through to the final vote, Chicago was voted out after the first vote, not even President Obama’s visit to Copenhagen helped his home town (Chicago) bid, and then Tokyo was knocked out after the second vote, leaving Rio De Janeiro and Madrid fighting to host the games.

Rio De Janeiro has gone through and won the prize to host the 2016 Olympic, now the hard work begins to prepare for the countless tourists and athletes, Hostel & hotels  accommodations need to be improved and added, not to mention the venues and stadiums needed to host all the events.

For Rio De Janeiro the hard work has just begun and 2016 seems a long time in the future, first we have to look forward to the London 2012 Olympics, London has countless established hostels and budget hotels, but there are also many new accommodations being built especially for the games and the Olympic Village and numerous venues and stadiums are well on their way to completion.

The Olympic games comes every 4 years and if you would like to experience either the London or Rio Games book your hostels and budget hotels well in advance as they always sells out very quickly
