Abandoned Olympic facilities today

Less than a week is left before the start of the Olympic Games in Rio, and the event organizers quickly make the final touches.

The Olympic Village was called uninhabitable, although the athletes still have to be populated there, and the pier for sailing competitions was destroyed by three-meter waves. In addition, the cost of hosting the Games is growing rapidly.
With each new Olympiad, more and more cities in the world are asking themselves: is the game worth the candle?

Most cities simply do not have the infrastructure needed to accommodate thousands of athletes, coaches, spectators and media representatives on their territory for two weeks. The sums required for the construction of Olympic facilities for advanced projects are growing, and research suggests that investing billions of dollars in a two-week event is not the best investment.

The worst scenario for the organizing cities is if, after the Games, the Olympic venues will become the fifth wheel in the cart, which, in addition, has been spent an insane amount of money. This has happened more than once with different cities of the world. Of course, the reasons for this development are different in each case The capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sarajevo, for example, was seriously affected by the civil war, which caused the destruction of many Olympic facilities left after the 1984 Winter Olympics.
