The Rio de Janeiro Olympic venue facing the most serious construction delay has hit another snag, with City Hall saying it is changing contractors for the track cycling velodrome.
In a statement, the city says it rescinded the contract of the principal builder and had authorized a subcontractor to take over.
Last week, the president of world cycling’s governing body said he was “very, very concerned” about the venue.
Rio organizers repeated Monday there will be no time for a test event. Organizers said they are still planning a “training session” June 25-27 six weeks before the Olympics open Aug. 5.
Rio has been plagued with problems such as the Zika virus and deep budget cuts, but readying venues on time has not been a concern.
