Will Brazil Fill The Olympic Stands?

This year, Brazil is scheduled to open its arms to people from all over the world for the 2016 Summer Olympics.

With the Games nearly three months away, the country is facing a series of unprecedented challenges: the Zika virus outbreak, which has been connected to a rare birth defect; a crippling recession that has left hundreds of thousands unemployed and sent inflation through the roof; and a political crisis that has implicated some of the country's most powerful lawmakers. 
Now, President Dilma Rousseff may have to step down amid allegations of fiscal mismanagement, leading many to ask: Will the Olympics even happen? 
According to organizers at the International Olympic Committee, the Games should not be affected by the current crisis. 
The IOC said it is closely following the impeachment situation, but stressed that the effects of such a controversy would likely be minimal. 
"These kinds of political issues have much less influence than at other stages of organizing the Olympic Games," the IOC said.
