This Is How Rio Olympic 2016 Venues Looked Like Only Six Months After The Game

Rio

When you look at the venues for the Summer Olympics in Rio, it’s pretty hard to believe that there was such an enormous event happening there only last year.

The power has been turned off now at the Maracana Stadium since nobody is paying the energy bills. In one practice pool, the water is orange, and turf has turned brown along with the countless stadium seats removed from the field.

However, this doesn’t begin to describe the situation happening in Rio’s favelas. They were supposed to be cleaned up ahead of the start of the Olympics. Sewage and feces like Gizmodo noted, flow through the streets in small rivers.

It’s more than clear that this situation shouldn’t come much of a surprise. We see the Olympic hosts promise that the dollars spent on the two-week event should be a lasting effect, but it’s the citizens that have to watch silently as the venues are abandoned and beginning to decay.

These photos have been taken only six months after the Olympics.
