I believe that the IOC members look not only at which countries have hosted recently, but also which regions, which is good for Rio, but bad for Tokyo (Beijing being so fresh in everyone's minds). But I think the area that you brought up hurts Brazil. That country is the most infrastructure-poor of all of them. The problem for Chicago (in spite of the President's efforts) is that the rest of the world is mad at the USA for the financial crisis of last year. Politics and a lack of local support will bring that bid down. This leaves me with Madrid, a city that very nearly won the last summer olympic vote (London for 2012).

Jacques Roggue has announced Rio as the winner, and so it shall be.

It's pretty exciting to think that the Olympics will be in the Southern Hemisphere again, and on a continent that could never have even been considered for the games just two decades ago.

I guess we'll meet back here in two years for the 2018 debate (I bet South Korea wins that).

Kanye West earlier today: "Yo Rio, I’m really happy for you and Imma let you finish. But Chitown had one of the best Olympic bids of all time!"

That's freakin' hilarious best joke I've ever seen on NJDevs :clap:
