Brazil may be on track for a record performance at the home Olympics in 2016. The Brazilian Olympic Committee is aiming for a record number of medals after the country significantly increased investments to train its athletes ahead of the games. The goal is to nearly double the 17 medals earned at the 2012 London Games and put Brazil in the top 10 in the overall number of medals, which officials say would be an outstanding feat for the hosts of the first Olympics in South America.
