    RIO DE JANEIRO: Rio marked 1000 days to the 2016 Olympics by starting the impending countdown with a blast, dynamiting the entrance to a tunnel to the new Transolimpica expressway which will link the city center with future Games sites. Organizing Committee president Carlos Arthur Nuzman and Rio governor Sergio Cabral were on hand to push the button to detonate the blast as the host city took a spectacular step towards launching the 23km-long expressway which will help to link four competition zones. Saturday marks the start of the 1,000 day countdown to the 2016 Games.
