Rio Olympic venues timelapse video

Brazil 2016 published a video Friday showing Rio Olympic venue progress six months ahead of the Opening Ceremony.

In January, Rio de Janeiro’s city hall released aerial images of Olympic construction, with organizers saying the main Olympic Park was 95 percent ready.

The Games will spread across four zones — Barra, Copacabana, Deodoro and Maracanã.

Barra, featured first in the above video, has been called the “heart of the Games” by organizers.
