SAO PAULO (AP) - London Olympic organizers are arriving in Brazil to pass on their knowledge to the hosts of the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro.

The meetings come less than two months after nine Rio committee employees were fired for illegally downloading files from British organizers during the London Games.

London officials will spend nearly a week in Brazil sharing their experience after seven years of preparations culminated in successful games just a few months ago.

The official "debrief" will go ahead without IOC President Jacques Rogge, whose doctors advised him to skip the long flight following his recent hip replacement surgery.
