BERLIN: Six months before the start of the Rio Olympics, IOC president Thomas Bach believes the summer games will be the perfect antidote to recent terror attacks and corruption scandals. After the recent terror attacks and corruption scandals, in football and athletics, Bach said that sport demonstrates a unity rarely seen in economics, culture or science and “I don’t even want to talk about politics,” he added. Despite organizers of the Rio Olympics having faced immense economic problems, Bach remains confident the 2016 Games will be a success, when they start on August 5.
