The problem with Brasil they were given the World Cup and Olympics within a couple of years. In hindsight it wouldn't seem smart to give two massive events to a developing country who doesn't have the proper infrastructure in place.
I agree unless the plan is to host the World Cup and then convert the stadiums into use for various events (track and field for example) for the Olympics. Even still thats a lot of stuff to prepare for (multiple billion if not trillion dollar events).
