Maria Silvia Bastos Marques, Olympics czar for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, smiles during an interview with Reuters in Rio de Janeiro September 21, 2011. Rio de Janeiro does not need foreign funding to stage the 2016 Games after abandoning plans to launch "Olympic bonds" worth $2 billion to help finance infrastructure projects, the city's new Olympics czar said on Wednesday. Marques, a former steel company executive who took up her new post in August, said the city was focusing on forming partnerships with private firms to complete stadium and transport improvements needed for Brazil's first Olympics.
