Venues Take Shape

Barra Olympic Park, which will be the heart of the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, is continuing to take shape.

As building work progresses, the first spectator stands and competition areas are already visible, providing glimpses of what it will be like when the world’s best athletes battle for medals there in less than two years’ time.

Alexandre Techima, Rio 2016’s Infrastructure Integration Director said:

Significant progress has been made and we are happy to see that work is proceeding as planned, and in some cases, is ahead of schedule.
     Venue construction has progressed a lot over the past few months and the structures of a number of arenas are already visible, such as the Carioca Arenas and the Olympic Tennis Centre, as well as the International Broadcasting Centre (IBC), Main Press Centre (MPC) and hotel.

       The three adjacent Carioca Arenas have seen the most progress. Competition areas have already been concreted and the initial structures for the spectator stands are in place.

Work is most advanced on Carioca Arena 3, where the stand structure has been completed and work is underway on fitting the steel support structures for the roof.

We have been working very hard to ensure that the venues are designed to meet all the requirements for hosting top-level sports competitions and we are very pleased to see the buildings leave the drawing board and become reality.
      Now it is possible to envision how they will be operated during the Games,

said Josué Moraes, Rio 2016’s sport group manager for taekwondo and judo.
