You try to think about the good times," Gay said as he prepares for the first round of the 100 meters Thursday night at U.S track and field championships.

An analysis by The Associated Press shows that the cost of putting on last year’s Rio de Janeiro Olympic was $13.1 billion.

This included a subway line extension, a cleanup of polluted Guanabara Bay and a renovated port area. Most of the sports venues remain empty, and it’s unclear if they will ever generate enough income to cover maintenance costs. (AP Photo/Felipe Dana, File)

A major reason is that cities exclude large amounts of associated costs when they bid to host the Olympics.
