I'm just amazed how leaders of countries care so much that they are taking time out of their schedules to pitch. Obama did it, it seems, and I read that Hatoyama was going also earlier.

Edit: The Chicago pitch that I'm hearing now is laying it on really thick, but that is par for the course, I guess.

According to the news I heard this morning live from Copenhagen - before the committees started their speeches - Chicago did seem to have taken a lead towards Rio, with the other two cities standing behind.

Rio! No need for a visa to watch when it's there.

wait, they're deciding now!?
ooooh sweet
*checks out BBC*
Yea, go figure, Obama is headhunting for Chicago :\

Pros and cons for each candidate city


And as much as it'd be nice for Rio to get it, according to the various categories they were judging the countries on, rio 'aparently' wouldn't be able to deal with the weight of the olympics in terms of infrastructure, fiance and a few other things compared to the other countries.
It's not just a case of 'location' as the factor for these things tbh but we'll see, a trip to Brazil would be cool tbh...

But yeah, opting for Tokyo, (biased cause my two cities would be related) Europe has had a 8 year gap between them, so Asia may go the same way perhaps.

It seems that Chicago is out of the running now?

Edit: Tokyo is out also.

Yup, confirmed.

First vote: Chicago eliminated.
Second vote: Tokyo eliminated.

Rio de Janeiro and Madrid now up for the Grand Finale, vote should be at 6:30 PM Copenhagen time (50 minutes from now).

I was watching CNN and some fat contributor had this to say

"I'm actually for Rio. In Rio, it's beautiful women at the beach, and in Chicago, it's fat people eating."

I'd like to see BJJ as a demonstration sport.

I am not happy at all about Rio, but I am curious to see what the Brazil volleyball teams and Beach volley teams will do.

The women's result in Beach volley got worse, to the point that they failed to win a medal in China. Since they will play at home, they'll have to win.

I'll help you fill in the line on why you're not happy:
Rio is hardly a 'jewel', more corruption, violence and murder and the filthiest sanitary conditions of any city being considered
