LAUSANNE, Switzerland Officials from Rio de Janeiro submitted documents Friday in support of the Brazilian city's bid to host the 2016 Olympics.
Rio is the second of seven applicants to hand over the files to the International Olympic Committee before Monday's deadline.
Tokyo, which hosted the Olympics in 1964, submitted its files Thursday.
The documents are in response to a detailed IOC questionnaire covering details of sports venues, financing, security, transportation, accommodation and other issues.
Rio would be the first South American city to host the Olympics.
The other bid cities are Baku, Azerbaijan; Chicago; Doha, Qatar; Madrid, Spain; and Prague, Czech Republic.
Chicago shipped its bid files to the IOC on Wednesday. Madrid officials are expected to deliver their dossier in person Monday. Doha, Prague and Baku also expected to meet the deadline.
All seven cities are expected to publicly release the documents Tuesday.
The files will be examined by a panel of IOC experts, who will compile a report for the ruling IOC executive board. The board will cut the field to a shortlist of finalists in June, while the full IOC will pick the host city Oct. 2, 2009, in Copenhagen, Denmark.
