Smile Chicago wins 2016 US Olympic Bid over Los Angeles...

Congrats to the "Windy City" of Chicago on winning the 2016 US Olympic bid over Los Angeles! If there was ever a city that's more deserving the selection, it had to be Chicago. It would be REALLY cool if they win the international bid over Madrid, Tokyo, etc. because it's only a 40-45 minute drive for me! That means, I may be able to see an Olympic event in person in my lifetime. Good luck Chicago! Hopefully you'll win the exclusive rights to host the 2016 Summer Olympics over the International competition.

The USA has hosted many times yes, but the country is very large. Atlanta was the South, LA is the West, Chicago would be the Midwest, etc.

Part of me wants Rio to win.

Re: Chicago wins 2016 US Olympic Bid over Los Angeles...



Look at how North America, Western Europe, Australia and East Asia have monopolized the Summer Olympics. There has to be at least ONE country in the grey area that can host one and if Rio can pull it off, then I hope they get it, that would be a trip! One of those rich petrodollar autocracies should try for one of these, they can afford it and it would be good propoganda ..hear me Hugo??

Re: Chicago wins 2016 US Olympic Bid over Los Angeles...

I dont see Chicago winning since Vancouver has 2010, they like to try to change up the continents. Also, I don't see Tokyo winning because Beijing has 2008. My guess is Rio.
