Its been over a week since the 2016 Rio Olympics ended and while many are now focusing on the next Olympics, Brazil still has a lot to do with what’s left after the event.
For the Rio Olympics, the country built 31 buildings with 17 floors each. The buildings have more than 3,500 apartments. Thousands of athletes, trainers and medical staff stayed there during the Olympics. Having more than 10,000 people at the athletes village requires the apartments to have furniture. Beds, tables, desks and just about everything they needed for the event were placed in the apartments. That’s a lot of furniture for just 16 days of Olympic competitions, so what happens after the event?
