Rio Olympics preparations “the worst I have experienced”-vice president

Coates, who has made six trips to Rio as part of the Coordination Commission responsible for overseeing the preparations, said the IOC had been forced to take the unprecedented action of embedding experts in the local organizing committee to help ensure the games are delivered.
Speaking at an Olympic forum in Sydney, Coates said the IOC had to form a special taskforce because the “situation is critical on the ground.”
