Corruption within the Olympic Committee

The Olympic Committee is an international organization filled with volunteer workers. These people are considered the supreme authority on topics which are related to the Olympic games. Unfortunately, like most large scale organizations, there is always a threat of corruption. In this case, the threat may be real.

Carlos Nuzman, the man who spearheaded the Rio 2016 games, has been suspended from the Olympic Committee, as has all of the other Brazilian delegates. The charge? Embezzlement.

Nuzman and his team have already released statements saying that everything that happened during Rio 2016 was “done within the law,” and that there was no corruption taking place.

Hopefully the corruption charges turn out to be false, as Latin America has been facing an increasing amount of corruption charges.
