Rio is the sports city of the moment

Article content

18 December 2009

Rio de Janeiro in Brazil will be the holiday hotspot for many a sports fan in the coming years, it has been claimed.

Writing for the Daily Mail, Sarah Gordon noted that a deluge of enthusiasts are likely to home in on the city as it prepares to host the 2016 Olympics and the 2014 World Cup.

According to Ms Gordon, one of the most well-known attractions of Rio is its beaches.

She stated: "Up to two million people from all walks of life pack Rio's [beaches] on a sunny day and the heaving masses are considered part of the city's charm."

Commenting on the sandy stretches of land, 26-year-old civil engineer Renato Franca was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying that they offer the "most democratic place" in the city.

Travel editor for Lonely Planet, Tom Hall, recently stated that Rio de Janeiro is the one place in Brazil that pops into everyone's mind when they think of the country.
