President Lula attacks the IOC
“The world’s most important sports event- besides the soccer world cup – cannot be the privilege of only the rich countries”. The USA is also a candidate to host the 2016 olympic games. “The IOC Leadership is like all the world’s riches: totally concentrated in europe, which holds more delegates than all of africa and latin america”, said Lula. Lula’s statement, during the meeting of Africa’s Dictators and latin america’s tyrants, is one of those stupid speeches delivered at the wrong time and in the wrong place. Politically, it is a catastrophe. Unless something exceptional happens, the “boquirroto” ( explaination: someone who speaks without thinking about the consequences)managed to bury the chances of the Olympic Games take place in Rio in 2016. Good for Brazil, which will not be dispossessed by the gang of BOC, as in the Panamerican games which, until the present, did not have its accounts closed.
