BELEK, Turkey (AP) — IOC President Thomas Bach is sending a senior troubleshooter to Brazil next week as part of a series of urgent measures to tackle the delays threatening the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Bach says IOC executive director of the Olympic Games Gilbert Felli is being dispatched to Rio several months earlier than scheduled to help deal with the construction holdups and political paralysis that is putting some sports venues at risk.

The International Olympic Committee is also sending several task forces to Brazil and urging the country to set up a special high-level decision-making body for the games.
