RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – Oh no Rio! Looks like the 2016 Olympic athletes may be left without a roof over their heads.

The mayor of Rio de Janeiro says that they had to close the six-year-old stadium to repair the roof because of structural damage.

As for how long it will take to fix could be 60 days, could be a year.

Times a ticking, especially when those 47,000 stadium seats will be jammed packed for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games.

Good news is another stadium will host the 2014 World Cup, next June.
