STORYLINE:

The Olympic flag has touched down in Rio de Janeiro, the city that will host the 2016 summer Games.

Rio's Mayor Eduardo Paes waved the five-ringed flag as he descended on Monday from his flight from London, where he was on hand for the Olympic closing ceremony a day earlier.

The flag's arrival marks the official start of Rio's Olympic preparations, with the city to undertake nearly 200 projects to construct sports venues and other infrastructure during the next four years.

Not all are elated; a small group of demonstrators gathered outside the airport where the mayor landed to protest against evictions connected with Olympic projects.

Rio will be the first South American city to host the Olympics.

The silk flag made for the Seoul Olympics in 1988 will go to Brasilia on Tuesday where it will be received by Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff.

On Wednesday it will return to Rio where it will travel around the city.

The arrival of the Olympic flag in Brazil on Monday has marked the start of four years of preparations ahead of the 2016 games in Rio de Janeiro.

Speaking at a packed news conference at Rio's Tom Jobim international airport, the mayor of Rio de Janeiro Eduardo Paes called it a "special moment" for Rio and for Brazil at large.

He pledged the games will leave a vast legacy for Rio, the beachside metropolis that suffered from decades of neglect after it lost national capital status to Brasilia in 1960.

"I knew I was holding that flag with many hands, and to be able to take care of this box, of this flag, which, at the moment I cannot touch without gloves, it's an enormous pleasure, an enormous honour," Paes said.

One Brazilian medal winner at the London Games told the news conference that having a home crowd cheering them on would produce even more medals.

"I think the possibility that one has to compete at home with the public's energy is unique. We can see now how the fans helped the English compete at home," said Robert Scheidt, who won a Bronze in sailing.

"I'm sure that us here will do even more, many more fans, much more energy. I think the athletes will gain a lot from that," he added.

The Olympic flag, made out of silk for the 1988 games in Seoul, South Korea, will be temporarily housed in the City Hall and will be open to viewings by visitors.

Rio will host the first Olympic Games in South America.

Officials said on Friday that the construction of the Olympic Park was on schedule, as the countdown to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro reaches 1,000 days on Saturday.

Work on the 1.18 million square metre Olympic Park began more than a year ago after the old Jacarepagua Racetrack was closed to make room for the park.

On Friday, Park officials opened an observation tower which in the future will be part of guided tours of the Olympic Park.

Officials said the infrastructure, such as drainage, water, sewage and fire-safety, were on schedule.

Rio Governor Sergio Cabral and Mayor Eduardo Paes toured the construction site and appeared pleased with the progress.

"I have no doubt, according to what I saw in Beijing and what I saw in London, that we will be ready when the Olympic Games begin," said Cabral.

In the past, Rio has struggled with delays which have raised concerns for the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

IOC officials have repeatedly asked Rio to speed up work on venue and infrastructure construction.

Ongoing street protests since the football Confederations Cup five months ago - a warmup for next year's World Cup - have centred on Brazil's poor public services.

About 15 billion US dollars is being spent on the World Cup, and a similar amount on the Olympics.

The chief executive officer of the Rio Games has been working for months to get an operating budget approved.

Officials are saying it will be ready shortly.

The original bid in 2009 listed the budget at 2.8 (b) billion US dollars, but most expect it to reach 4 billion US dollars or more.

Rio's Olympics have been overshadowed by the World Cup and the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

But that will soon change.

The Rio Games open on 5 August 2016, with the Paralympics on 7 September 2016.

Summary: Olympic sailors, protesters call for clean-up of waters around Rio

Olympic sailors and other athletes demonstrated on Saturday at Rio de Janeiro's Yacht Club over poor water quality in the once-pristine Guanabara Bay, site of the future Olympic Park.

Demonstrators want the Brazilian authorities to take emergency action and begin a comprehensive cleanup.

Members of the exclusive sailing club, including Olympic medallists, donned green protest t-shirts emblazoned with "summer of sanitation".

"I've been sailing for 20 years all over the world and I've never been in an area where the water was so bad as it is here. So this is the worst in the whole world I've ever seen," said Allan Norregaard, a member of the Danish sailing team, and a bronze medal winner at the London 2012 Olympics Games.

Nearly 70 percent of Rio's sewage goes untreated, meaning runoff from its many slums and poor neighbourhoods drains into the waters in Guanabara Bay, soon to play host to some of the world's best athletes.

"At the moment it doesn't feel like this is an Olympic venue quite yet," said Charlotte Dobson, of the British Olympic Sailing team.

"The water quality is really pretty poor, and from a health perspective you're quite worried about it," she added.

Rio's Olympic committee has pledged in writing that the pollution problems will be fixed in time for the 2016 Games.

Many had hoped the upcoming Olympics would force authorities to tackle decades of neglect and poor planning that have blighted waterways.

The only exit for foul, polluted waters in the 148-square-mile (383-square-kilometre) Guanabara Bay is through a narrow opening onto the Atlantic Ocean.

It's not clear what consequences there might be if Rio doesn't clean up its waterways, but this isn't the first time Olympic cities have faced environmental challenges.

Summary: Rio organisers unveil operating budget for 2016 Olympic Games

The operating budget for the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016 was announced at 7 billion reals (2.9 billion US dollars) by organisers on Thursday, an increase of 27 percent over the figure submitted in the 2009 bid.

The budget is purely for the organisation of the Games and the final figure has been delayed for months with Brazil's three levels of government debating over who would pay for what.

"The budget we are showing you is all with private resources. There's no contribution from the government in this budget," said Sidney Levy, Rio 2016 Committee Chief Executive Officer at a news conference in Rio de Janeiro on Thursday.

A separate and much larger capital budget - a mix of private and public funds - will be unveiled next week and could top 11 billion US dollars.

This is for building roads, subway lines and other improvements triggered by the Games.

Organisers moved many costs from the operating budget to the public treasury, making comparisons to the original submission in 2009 difficult.

In addition, the Brazilian currency, the real, has fallen in value against the dollar.

The real was calculated at one dollar to two reals in the 2009 bid document. On Thursday, one dollar equalled 2.4 reals.

Organisers said inflation in Brazil from January 2009 to December 2013 was 39 percent.

"We are announcing today a budget of seven billion reals (USD 2,91 billion), higher than the bid budget, adjusted from inflation. Why? Because we had new expenses and new incomes," Levy said.

IOC President Thomas Bach called it a "very reasonable" operating budget after meeting on Tuesday in Brasilia with President Dilma Rousseff.

"We are working with a budget that is 30 percent smaller than London's," said Carlos Nuzman, the Rio 2016 Committee Chairman.

Overall spending for the Olympics is expected to be slightly more than the World Cup.

The 2009 bid document showed 700 million US dollars in subsidies from the national and local governments. That funding is out of the latest operating budget.

All the rest you have to do yourselves.' So, there was a negotiation process with the Government. They signed off our budget and they said 'OK, we agree that this is a good use of the seven billion reals of your revenues, so you are going to spend that. Everything else will be covered by us.'"

The mascot for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games was unveiled at an event in Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday.

Draped in the colours of the Brazilian flag, 'Ginga', a type of jaguar, made his debut in front of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff and Rio 2016 officials.

The mascot will also accompany athletes to the Pan American Games being held in Toronto in July.

Brazil is sending 600 athletes to the event in Canada, the largest Brazilian team ever sent to an international event.

The opening and closing ceremonies for Rio Olympics and Paralympics will be low-budget productions compared to three years ago in London, or in Beijing in 2008.

Fernando Meirelles, the Brazilian filmmaker and part of the creative team, told reporters on Tuesday that Rio will spend one-tenth what London did on four major ceremonies.

The austerity reflects the reality of Rio's Olympics, which open in just over 10 and a half months and are caught up in the economic and political upheaval besetting Brazil.

Meirelles, who directed the film "City of God," said there was no financial or creative government involvement in the ceremonies which meant they could be independent.

Our overall budget remains the same 7.4 billion reais (about $1.85 billion USD). We started with 7 billion reais ($1.75 billion USD) and then due to the changes in the exchange rate we went up on the right side of those changes so the budget increased to 7.4 billion reais ($1.85 billion USD) that budget remains, what we are doing is reviewing some of our expenses because the budget needs to be balanced, expenses must equal revenues."
