Protests stunt World Cup, Olympic buildup in Brazil
Mexico’s Oribe Peralta, left, and Brazil’s Juan Jesus battle for the ball in the gold medal match at the Summer Olympics August 11,2012, at Wembley Stadium in London. Mexico topped Brazil by a score of 2-1, as Peralta scored twice.Rarely does a country have the opportunity to host a FIFA World Cup, and rarely does a country have the opportunity to host the Summer Olympic Games. Even more rare, and almost unprecedented, is the opportunity to host the World Cup and the Olympics only two years apart. This is the opportunity that Brazil will have when it hosts the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
