Rio 2016 organizers get pointers from London 2012

Rio 2016 organizers get pointers from London 2012

Brazilian officials say organizers of the 2012 London Olympics are their "inspiration" as they begin preparations to host the first games in South America in 2016.
Rio de Janeiro officials met with London organizers Friday and toured the main Olympic complex to learn from the British capital's experience in planning for 2012.
It's the first visit to London by Brazilian organizers since Rio was awarded the games by the International Olympic Committee in October.
Rio 2016 organizing committee leader Carlos Nuzman says "London was our inspiration during the bid and will continue to be our inspiration as organizers."
The delegation also included Brazilian sports minister Orlando Silva and Rio de Janeiro state governor Sergio Cabral.
