The commission led by Nawal El Moutawakel told the IOC Congress on Sunday that Rio had made “reassuring” progress in the last year but there was still a lot of work to do. “There is a need, more than ever before, that all stakeholders need to work together. Key decisions need to be made collectively and communicated with one voice.”
Australian IOC member Kevan Gosper, who also serves as chairman of the IOC press commission, told Nuzman that Rio needed to get their media operations in order. Nuzman responded that the Rio organisers were aware of the growing discontent and he vowed they would do a better job getting their messages across.
