An encounter with
the future
Renato Casagrande
Governor of the State of Espírito Santo
We are very optimistic about the possibility of receiving, in our State, one or more
delegations from countries that will participate in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro
in 2016. To that end, besides our efforts, we count on a number of factors, such as the
proximity of the host city, certain regional geographic characteristics, and the tradition
of warm hospitality of our people, which make Espírito Santo not only a feasible base
but also extremely attractive to teams from other countries.
It is an opportunity which cannot be missed to stimulate the development of high
performance sports within the regions of Espírito Santo and, at the same time, to disseminate the singularity as well as the combination of attractions and touristic facilities
of our State. After all, because they are sports event on the global stage, the Olympic
Games are closely watched by the world media, which endeavors to reflect the reality of
the country and, more especially, the regions chosen to welcome the different delegations.
However, this event, which involves thousands of athletes and the most compe-
tent sports teams of the world, is more than just an opportunity. It is also an enormous
challenge to our capacity to mobilize and organize. And I have no doubt whatsoever
that we can count on the enthusiasm, the dedication, and the intelligence of the local
sportsmen, the citizens, the press, the municipal managers, and the whole of private
initiative, so that all the objectives of this phase of the habilitation and the preparation
of our State to welcome the foreign delegations will be accomplished.
We have already mobilized resources, seeking out partnerships in society and work-
ing to guarantee the necessary infra-structure and offer of services of the very highest
quality. It is thus that we will make our encounter with the future a reality in 2016. And
it is thus that the people of the State of Espírito Santo – which takes great pride in having welcomed immigrants from every corner of the world for centuries – will be able to
reaffirm the Universalist vision that distinguishes our culture, and the undeniable historic
vocation of our territory as a fraternal space open to the world.
Sporting legacy
Vandinho Leite
State Secretary of Sports and Leisure
Welcome to Espírito Santo. The land of miscegenation. The land of all peoples who
come here to live in peace, harmony, and prosperity. Presenting our State to you is more
than our objective; it is an obligation. It is the obligation to offer better, welcome better, and certainly better accommodate your delegation to the Olympic Games and the
Para-Olympic Games of Rio 2016.
Information on sports, tourism, culture, and economy can be found in this Guide
to Espírito Santo 2016. They are details which will approach you to the sought after
perfection for the pre-Games training period, which is to say, sports facilities approved
by the Rio 2016 Olympic and Para-Olympic Games Committee, proximity to the City of
Rio de Janeiro, and a similar climate.
In this Guide, we present diverse training locales already selected by the Rio
2016Olympic and Para-Olympic Games Committee, taking into account a considerable
number of modalities. All of the sports locales are in regions with the same average
climatic temperatures as the host-city of the Games. All that just a 45-minute plane ride
away. You couldn´t possibly have better acclimatization!
None of the potential factors mentioned above –equipment, geographic position,
and climate – would be of any use to you without the unconditional support of the
Government of the State of Espírito Santo for this project. More than the preparation to
welcome you, this commitment of our State Government consists of investments in the
order of R$ 150 million directed to the sportive infra-structure, made directly available
for pre-Games utilization, and destined to be a legacy made available to our population.
Furthermore, being a part of the preparations for the Olympics is the certainty of a
legacy that will be offered to future generations of our State and of our Country. Welcoming you to our home will be an even greater privilege. It is not just about a sportive effort
but, rather, a commitment to the Olympic spirit to unite peoples and a reaffirmation
of our premise for 2016, to wit, that “the path to the podium passes through Espírito

Ideal for those seeking for great infra-
structure and tranquility for their delegation,
the State of Espírito Santo, in addition to modern sports centers adapted to the necessities
of the teams, also has great leisure programs
and wonderful business opportunities. It is a
State where nature has been very generous.
The proximity to Rio de Janeiro and other
economic and touristic centers of Brazil, as
well as geographic variety, which include
contrasts in temperature and landscape
that few regions of the world have, are the
distinguishing characteristics of Espírito Santo.
All of that in one of the fastest eco-
