RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL | 09 NOVEMBER 2013

The countdown to the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro reaches 1,000 days on Saturday.

Rio has struggled with on-going street protests and delays that have raised concerns for the International Olympic Committee. IOC officials have repeatedly asked Rio to speed up work on venue and infrastructure construction, warning organizers they have little cushion.

The president of the organizing committee and head of the Brazil Olympic Committee said "we are absolutely confident that all the construction projects will be delivered in the timeframe we expect."
