London passes Olympic baton to Rio organizers

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) -- London organizers have symbolically passed the Olympic baton to the hosts of the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro.

London organizing committee President Sebastian Coe gave the baton to Rio committee President Carlos Nuzman on Sunday during the official debriefing of the 2012 Games.

Coe handed over the silver-colored baton, which was inscribed with the names of all the past host cities. He says he's certain "you will organize an excellent Olympics."

Coe also gave Nuzman part of the 2012 Games pyre "to provide inspiration during the cycle before the completion of the first games in South America."

IOC executive director Gilbert Felli opened the debriefing saying "we all must search for information and ask questions to soak up the experience of the London team."

The meetings end Wednesday.
