    It is the final chance for domestic and international press to meet with Rio 2016 organizers for one-on-one meetings to prepare for Games operations in less than a year's time.

    Some 365 media representatives are attending the briefing including Around the Rings editor Ed Hula, ATR reporter Aaron Bauer, and ATR director of business development Ed Hula III.

    ATR editor Ed Hula says that the group's venue tour on Monday began with a stop at the Olympic Stadium.

    So far, he adds, it seems as though most of the venues are nearly finished.

    The 2016 Rio Olympic Games will open on August 5.
