Rio Olympics an Unmitigated Disaster

By Robert Paul Reyes

Rio Olympics destined to be an unmitigated disaster. Interim Brazilian President Michel Temer greeted with jeers. Zika-bearing  mosquitoes. Traffic congestion. Poverty. Crime. Substandard housing for Olympians, dilapidated shacks for residents. Oily Tongan Hulk the star of ill-fated Olympics. Cheating Russians. American basketball team as unbeatable as the Harlem Globetrotters. Economic basketcase. Athletes` uniforms cameltoe heaven. Terrorism an ever present fear. Why was this hellhole of a country selected to host Olympics?
