International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach says he is pleased with Rio Janeiro’s preparations for the 2016 Olympics.
Bach spoke in the capital of Brazil after his meeting with Brazillian President Dilma Rousseff. Both men will inspect the progress of venues in Rio Janeiro with other Olympic committee members.
It’s an improvement from last year when IOC Vice President, John Coates called Brazil’s organization “the worst ever”.
Concerns were raised after a recent rise of crime was thought to affect tourist in the area.
This is the first time an South American country will be hosting the games.
