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.

“”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.””
