In the order of drawing of lots carried out by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Executive Board on 12 December 2007, the 2016 Applicant Cities are: CHICAGO (USA) BAKU (AZE) PRAGUE (CZE) DOHA (QAT) TOKYO (JPN) MADRID (ESP) RIO DE JANEIRO (BRA) In accordance with Rule 34 of the Olympic Charter and its Bye-law: Acceptance of Candidate “All Applicant Cities shall comply with a Candidature Acceptance Procedure, Cities conducted under the authority of the IOC Executive Board, which shall determine the contents of such procedure. The IOC Executive Board shall decide which cities will be accepted as Candidate Cities.” For the 2016 procedure, the IOC Executive Board will decide which Applicant Cities shall be accepted as Candidate Cities on 4 June 2008, in Athens, Greece. Executive Board The IOC Executive Board has instructed the IOC administration to: instructions • Prepare and send to all Applicant Cities and their NOCs the Candidature Acceptance Procedure and Questionnaire; • Review all answers and other related information received from the Applicant Cities; • Establish, for the attention of the IOC Executive Board, a technical report assessing the potential of each Applicant City – including its country – to organise successful Olympic Games in 2016. It will be up to the IOC Executive Board to determine which cities shall be accepted as Candidate Cities. The purpose of the Working Group report is to assist the IOC Executive Board in making its decision. 5_110 Report by the IOC Candidature Acceptance Working Group / Games of the XXXI Olympiad in 2016 Introduction Introduction, Continued Services In order to assist Applicant Cities in replying to the IOC Questionnaire, the following services were provided: provided to Applicant Cities • An information seminar held in Lausanne from 15 – 19 October 2007.

The quality of the Application Files reflects the benefits of these services. Working Group In order to perform its task and prepare this report, the IOC has commissioned a number of studies, appointed a number of experts, including experts from the International Federations (IFs), National Olympic Committees (NOCs) and the IOC Athletes’ Commission, and established an IOC Candidature Acceptance Working Group (hereafter the “Working Group”) composed of the following persons (in alphabetical order): Mr Simon BALDERSTONE IOC Environment advisor Member of the IOC Evaluation Commission (2008, 2012 and 2014) Ms Jacqueline BARRETT IOC Head of Bid City Relations Professor Philippe BOVY IOC Transport advisor since the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games Retired Professor of transportation, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne Member of the IOC Evaluation Commission (2012 and 2014) Member of the IOC Candidature Acceptance Working Groups (2008 – 2014) 6_110 Report by the IOC Candidature Acceptance Working Group / Games of the XXXI Olympiad in 2016 Introduction Introduction, Continued Mr Christophe DUBI IOC Sports Director Mr Bob ELPHINSTON President of the International Basketball Federation Former Secretary General of the Australian Olympic Committee Inc.

Their studies and reports have been carried out and submitted in full independence. Applicant City All seven Applicant Cities replied to the IOC’s questionnaire by the deadline set by the IOC (14 January 2008). responses All Working Group members received the documentation provided by each Applicant City. Working Group The Working Group met in Lausanne from 11 to 14 March 2008. Meeting Following presentations made by experts and IOC Directors, the Working Group assessed the Applicant Cities on the basis of a number of technical assessment criteria. Weightings, varying between 1 and 5 (5 being the highest), were attributed by the Working Group to each criterion as follows: 8_110 Report by the IOC Candidature Acceptance Working Group / Games of the XXXI Olympiad in 2016 Introduction Introduction, Continued Working Group Meeting (continued) Weighting 1. Government support, legal issues and public opinion (including compliance with the Olympic Charter and the 2 World Anti-Doping Code*) 2. General infrastructure 5 3. Sports venues 4 4. Olympic Village(s) 3 5. Environmental conditions and impact 2 6. Accommodation 5 7. Transport concept 3 8. Safety and security 3 9. Experience from past sports events 2 10. Finance 3 11. Overall project and legacy 3 * The Working Group has commented on the Applicant Cities’ compliance with the World Anti-Doping Code, but not assigned grades. The value given to a weighting is a combination of two factors: 1) it reflects the level of information requested of the Applicant Cities at this stage of the bid process; 2) it reflects the potential of achieving the level required for the organisation of the Olympic Games in the seven years’ preparation time. In line with the above, the Working Group’s task has been to assess current conditions in each Applicant City and country and to determine the potential of each city and its country to organise successful Olympic Games in 2016, given the time and resources available. The Working Group has based its analysis on the information provided by the Applicant Cities, the reports provided by external experts and their own expertise. 9_110
