After the Olympics, Rio Pays the Price

AliceAnil

What's left after the Olympics are over? Now that the party is gone, Brazilians are paying a steep price for hosting the 2016 Olympic games. Stadiums are abandoned and according to some accounts, the country's "US$12 billion Olympic legacy" is now in ruins.

Which makes one wonder: Does hosting the Olympics even make any sense?

I went to Rio to cover the hidden side of the Olympics that NBC didn't show you-- the thousands of people that were displaced, and the overspending and corruption that has bankrupted the city of Rio.
