The seventh edition of the 'Worldwide Great Nations of Sport Ranking' has revealed that Brazil's sports performance is on the rise in the lead up to the 2016 Olympic Games.
Brazil, ranked 17th in the general study, has jumped nine places breaking in to the top 20 sporting nations. In 2011, Brazil picked up 12 additional titles. Looking specifically at Olympic disciplines, Brazil is now ranked 13th, climbing up 14 places since 2010.
This rise in sports performance is a direct result of the focus and dedication the Brazilian NOC has directed towards developing sport throughout the country. TSE Consulting is working closely with the National Olympic Committee and the national federations with the goal of improving the performance of athletes at the Olympic Games through the use of proven models of success. London 2012 will act as a large milestone to evaluate the progress, but 2016 is the main target for the project. TSE is also providing consultation on sport-related activities for the Rio 2016 organising committee in the lead up to the Olympic Games in 2016. Carlos Nuzman, President of the Brazilian Olympic Committee said: "The arrival of Steve Roush and TSE Consulting will bring an immense contribution to the development of Olympic Sports in Brazil. His experience leading the American team during three editions of the Olympic Games will certainly be very useful. His presence will add to the planning being done by the Brazilian Olympic Committee, together with the national federations, for the next Olympic cycle."
