If Brasília was built in 41 months, from 1956 to April 21, 1960, easily Rio can built and transform this wonderful city to host succesfully the world in 7 years from now!

THE FIRST ROUND!!!
yeah, I agree. I would have no problem with Chicago losing to Rio in the final round, but not being last.

As I said earlier, it's the voting system that failed Chicago. It lends itself to regional bias in the opening round and is not a matter of bid quality at that point. Many IOC members see the opening round as a nuisance and use that opening round to carry out favors, often tilting the vote.

The real sad part is this is the end of the line for Chicago. No more Chicago Spire, no more skyscrapers there period. The city's whole future was riding on getting the Olympics, but, heh, it didn't happen. Sometimes cities die.

We'll see how Rio does. There damned well better be loads of naked women in that opening ceremony.



In spirit of awarding the games to regions that have never hosted:

McMurdo Station, 2020!

No wait, it's run by the USA, and has a large military component, the IOC won't tolerate that....

Vostok Station, 2020!!!!!!!!

I was mainly against Rio for selfish reasons. I'm going to the WC in 2014 so if I were to travel for the 2016 Olympics, I'd have liked to go somewhere new. Madrid would have been nice. Congrats to the Brazilians though.
