Interview with Sidney Levy the Olympics CEO- PBS, 06/29/2016
Earlier this week, I sat down with Sidney Levy, the CEO of Rio’s Olympic Organizing Committee.
Sidney Levy, welcome.
When the Olympics were awarded in 2009, things were very different in Brazil and in Rio. What assurances can you give the athletes, the spectators, the broadcasters around the world who are going to be watching this that things will be ready to go in less than six weeks?
SIDNEY LEVY, CEO, Rio 2016 Committee: Well, we are ready.
Why are we ready? Because we have been working hard for seven years. We have thousands of people working. We spent a lot of money. And we put all the resources, all the creativity we have to deliver great Games, and that’s a commitment for the people to do that and for the country. We are doing this for the people of our country.
