Before the start
The Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro the organizers of the Games expressed concerns about
ensure the safety of participants. The fact that Rio is a city with a
exceptionally high levels of crime. Therefore, to preserve order on
the streets of the city and in the Olympic village
it was decided to use, to help the police, even the army. To provide
the safety of athletes and tourists were sent to guard a total of 85 thousand
man! Incidentally, the number of Brazilian police in two times exceeded the number of their fellow Britons who worked for

Perhaps, in Rio cleared the thieves. Moreover, the kidnappers of another kind

ingenuity.

One of the first was

just arrived in Rio and checked into a hotel and was approached by unknown
the man appeared to be athlete
absolutely drunk, and pushed him so hard that he knocked down. And then
ran away. Shea and his colleague ran after him, but, of course, not caught up, And
when they returned, they realized that all their stuff was gone. As shown then the camera
observation, the “drunk” had an accomplice, who quickly took the Luggage, while
Dongpeng and his friend chased the offender.

Similar story, in
which the thieves worked in a pair, happened to the photographer of the press center Brett Costello. When he dined in a cafe, his bag with equipment and a jacket
lying nearby on a chair. At some point
to Brett asked the woman sitting at the
another table behind Costello. He turned to talk to her, and
when returned to the “original position”, found that the bag with the equipment 40
thousand dollars, and the jacket disappeared. As we found out later the woman had
an accomplice who, while she was distracted by a photographer, stole his things, jumped in
parked beside the car and disappeared…
