Chicago For The 2016 Summer Olympics

Chicago has officially joined the likes of Rio de Janiero Brazil, Tokyo Japan & The Prague Czech Republic as the Cities competing for the 2016 Summer Olympics. Battling Los Angeles California for the U.S. representation, it was finalized by the U.S. Olympic Committee last April 2007.

"We look forward to working with the International Olympic Committee in convincing them why we believe Chicago is the best host city," Mayor Richard Daley said while acknowledging "tough competition" from some of the "greatest cities in the world." Chicago officials were upbeat about the success of an Olympics in a city enamored of its sports teams.

The U.S. Olympic Committee will still need to fill in the paperwork and wait till June 2009 when the International Olympic Committee will officially announce whether Chicago, Rio de Janiero Brazil, Tokyo Japan, The Prague Czech Republic or other applicant cities won the right to host the 2016 Olympic Games.
