It was Brazil's golden opportunity. Years of preparation with billions of dollars spent culminating in a spectacular sporting event. And now, the country is almost back to normal. Its new normal, anyway. As the 2016 Olympic flame went out in Rio de Janeiro, its national problems fell back into the spotlight. The host country had a chaotic build up to the summer games, with President Dilma Rousseff on the verge of impeachment, an economy in survival mode, and public frustration at boiling point. But in many ways, Brazil surpassed expectations and disproved naysayers- pulling off a major spectacle boasting new world records, historic wins, and little controversy. And that could have been the biggest win at the Summer Olympic Games. Its legacy, however, is still up for grabs.
