2016 Rio Olympics aim for record sponsorship haul

This is a Thursday, June 27, 2013 file photo of Brazilian Indians shake maracas and shout slogan against the government as they protest in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It's the latest in a series of massive, nationwide protests that have hit Brazil since mid-June. Demonstrators are angered about corruption and poor public services despite a heavy tax burden.

With financial backing for the 2106 Olympics drying up, Brazilian organizers are scrambling to raise record amounts of local sponsorship money to cover any budget shortfall and avoid a government bailout.
