Jacques Rogge talks about protests, COI’s communication responsibilities and the games benefits.
“”Among the protesters’ many grievances was the amount of public money being spent on new stadiums when local public services such as health and transport are in a dismal state. “We have to explain very clearly to the public that the investments made in the Olympic Games are for a sustainable legacy for generations to come,” Rogge told reporters in a conference call.””
