  • It's very good for the economy

    My point is that very good for the economy. Say the Olympics was held in France, then competitor’s, their families and the general public all over the world, would have to fly to France to watch the Olympics. The airline tickets and hotel fees would be out of sight. The country would gain all that money so therefore the Olympics actually helps countries to gain more money. The athletes would also have to learn French so they could understand when to start their race, and to know what the crowd is shouting.

  • Wasted money and time

    TARITH ‘s speech
    Hello Ladies and gentlemen we disagree going to be talking to you about the olympics and how it is going to be causing congestion. For anyone who doesn't know what congestion is it is basically traffic. With all the olympic chaos it is always going to cause traffic. There are so many people who go to watch the olympics and with so many people in Rio it would be a headache for the locals but especially for people who want to earn money for their families and students that want to learn. The city has opened new olympic lanes for only olympians. That is another reason why it causes congestion. In Rio the traffic has already spread 74 miles and going a 15 km h the media says. They have also blocked trucks going to the city and that is making it hard for builders they also say finds can be reached up to 242 real (Or 500 dollars in Australia. I do not get why they are giving everyone a hard time on the road just for olympians to go to their matches. There are so many people in Rio and they are only letting the olympians get past it doesn't sound right.
    My next point is about money. It cost rio about 11.6 billion it is such a waste of money for a bunch of games. I mean who wants to go to a stadium to watch people run and receive medals it is a waste of time. Also it costs a fortune for tickets. Some people say that children get inspired by athletes by watching them. That is not true you need to play sport not watch it. Anyway we need to be spending money on things that will help the community. We could be spending money on better school education and homes for homeless people are starving and we could be helping them but no we are spending it on some dumb olympics. Then there are schools we could be spending money so everyone can go to school and get the same education.

  • Yes, it is a waste.

    Whenever teachers, police, fire, EMS, etc. make more $10 an hour average. (That being in most places, not LA or Shitcogo) Then we can talk about building these things. Not just world events, but National ones as well. Like billions on football stadiums in St. Louis and elsewhere and these cities are full of poor and homeless. No it's not worth the money for an event that last 16 days and cost 40 years to pay off. The VA system is broken the emergency personal make nothing, homelessness keeps growing and jobs are leaving. Yet we build BS ball game statiums and bailout banks! NO tax payers should not pay for anymore. Because of some democrat lead politics believe in spend spend spend. Things like this should end up on ballots for the people to vote on, not a couple of politicians who want publicity.

  • Such a waste

    All that money and all that effort going into the Olympics. Why would you waste all that money on something we don't need but just want. Think of all those poor poor people who don't have much money and need some help they need the money more than we do.

  • Definitely it is!

    Tax payers money could be going to a better cause like hospitals, roads, ambulances, people, businesses finding cures for diseases like cancer, etc. These things I have stated all need more money and instead we are putting money into games where people can cheat and get sick like we have seen this year in the 2016 Rio games it just isn't worth spending 3 trillion dollars on something we don't need!

  • What are we really celebrating?

    The Olympic Games, a time when athletes show off all of their hard work. But is it really them doing all of the work? Athletes now have been using drugs to enhance their performance. Why should we be spending money to hold sporting events when so much cheating is going on.

  • It is a waste of money

    The Olympics cost a lot to set up and overall it will cost the government of the country that holds the olympics more than what they would get back from the competition. Also the country that holds the olympics in the years leading up to the Olympics spend more money building these stadiums and clearing space for everything to be built than they spend on building up the local infastructure.

  • They are not a waste of money

    Olympics are not a waste of money because it only happens every 4 yrs
    in that time the country that hosts the Olympics can save a lot so there
    would be less or even no deficit. Olympics are not a waste money as it brings countries closer in an interactive way.

  • A total waste of money

    We end up loosing money instead of gaining it because the stadiums and facilities cost so much money only to get knocked down a couple weeks later, and there are so much better ways to spend money for example we could be donating money to charity or homeless sick people.

  • Olympics = Commercialised Bogus

    We should all be ashamed. Industrial nations should be focusing on important issues, not patting themselves on the back every two years. People talk about peace, but it means nothing. The second resources ad power are in question, War will return.

    The amount f unnecessary travel, and infrastructure/ building that is initiated, and later left unused is a disgrace. Humanity needs to grow up, the past century has been dark, and civilisation is only getting darker. Things like the Olympics are a lie. Celebration skin deep. Happiness that is acted out.

  • No, They Are Worth It

    The Olympics do a lot of good. First, they spur countries and municipalities to invest in better infrastructure. That alone benefits the people of the hosting area. Also, the games bring in a lot of tourists, and that injects a massive amount of money into local economies. Lastly, the games promote international peace, and that is priceless.

  • The Olympics are not a waste of money

    The Olympics are a good use of money because they boost tourism. They also give international athletes a chance to show off their skills and win medals.
    The Olympics give a chance to people to represent their country and cheer for their athletes.

    Now you can see that the Olympics are not a waste of money but a chance to compete for titles, medals and make your country proud.

  • They are not a waste of money

    The Olympics create international bonds between countries that no other event can bring. The Olympics also give younger and more new athletes a chance to be recognized internationally. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

  • No,the olympic games are not a waste of money.

    The Olympic games are not a waste of money.The olympics bring benefits to an area that may not be seen on an immediate basis.New jobs are brought into the area as well as new construction which normally works to improve an area that would otherwise be languishing without funds for improvements,
