The Russians are there, but it’s like they aren’t at all. They finally got in after a huge doping scandal but then couldn’t qualify for anything because, well, they were no longer on dope. The much run down Rio Olympics turn out to be a celebration of American sports with the U.S. winning just about everything in sight. That’s after the American media basically reduced Rio and Brazil itself to little more than third world slum sites.
Brazil has about half the population of the U.S. in about the same geographic area. It’s economy is only the size of Canada’s though.
And it is one hell of a neat place. A comer, no doubt….
And the U.S. is having a great time there this year….
