It's been just a little over seven months since the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, and there are lots of medal-worthy moments that we're still talking about to this day. We still can't get enough of the "Final Five" – AKA the stellar U.S. gymnasts who dominated last year's competition – and we're still laughing at some of the Olympics-inspired memes.
But one aspect of the Olympics that hasn't stood the test of time is the venue itself. When it was first announced that the games would be held in Rio, the president of the Olympics Organizing Committee promised that the event would "leave a huge legacy for both Rio and Brazil," citing the athletic complexes, a light rail transit service, and a renovated port as beneficial to the city. But in the months and weeks leading up to the games, there were several concerns about the negative lasting effects for the city, as well as concerns regarding pollution, infrastructure limitations, and illness.
Now, just months later, in March 2017, the Olympic sites remain unused and empty. The athletic complexes that were once full of spectators and athletes alike have become a ghost town, and there's almost no signs that indicate the city has benefited from a "huge legacy," as originally promised. Incidentally, this is not the first time this has happened. Athens, Greece is also home to a series of abandoned buildings and stadiums that were used for the 2004 summer games, and Sarajevo's ski jumps and bobsled tracks from the 1984 winter games now look like the set of a dystopian film.
With that, here are 10 photos of what Rio's Olympic venues look like today.
