2016 Rio Summer Olympics thread

Is it close enough to start an official Olympics thread yet? If not, this can be the pre-thread. This is what is greeting visitors showing up in Rio. I hope these games do not have any major incidents.

I wish they'd just cancel them. Its such a f**king mess down there.
Just give USA all the gold medals and cancel the games
I'm hyped up for men's table tennis. Want to see Ma-Long pwn everyone's ass on his way to gold.
You all remember this? the SF Bay area bid for the 2016 games. I bet the IOC wishes they had given it to them now.

Rio is super dangerous. A lot of crime and bad problems.
Some athletes that have arrived early have already been robbed. Including a female Paralympic athlete at gunpoint in broad daylight.

Shout out to Rio

The world just needs to imagine WW3 broke out and the Olympics are suspended until peace happens again.
Come to Rio, we're waiting for you.
