Rio 2016 Prez: Golf Course Project All "Sorted" And "Started"

Tom Degun at says Rio 2016 President Carlos Nuzman insists all has been "sorted" for the Olympic golf course project.

Specifically, he says all legal disputes have been settled and that the project has "started."

"With regard to the golf course, we have now finalised all the adjustments," Nuzman told insidethegames here on the eve of the 2013 Laureus World Sports Awards, which are due to take place tonight.

"We have signed the contract with the owner of the land so we are in control of the project and have already started.


"It is not something that is completely to do with the Organising Committee as it is also a matter for the Government but it is definitely all sorted and we will certainly have the golf course ready on time."

Last week, Gil Hanse spoke on Morning Drive about the stalled project.
