Because of lots of people argue that the Olympic games were being host in the same countries repeatedly. The IOC then decides on 2016 that the Olympic would be held in Rio de Janeiro, "We have forgotten the true spirit of the Olympics, It should have been a event that is global. In the pass years we have been focusing in Europe, North America, Japan, South Korea & Australia" said the IOC. The 2008 Summer Olympics at Beijing inspired the whole world despite of some issues in China. Then the IOC said "It is time to make the Olympics a global event". The IOC then sees oportiunity in other countries, Opening it's doors fully to the world. The Olympics became more exciting.
