Rio de Janeiro will host the 2016 Olympics. The Brazilian city will host the first ever Summer Olympics in the South American continent. Rio de Janeiro beat rival Olympic bidding cities Madrid, Tokyo and Chicago. I was rooting for the early favorite city (Chicago) since I had the chance to drop by O’Hare Airport (via connecting flight) a few months back and they impressed me with their olympic bid and preparations. But I think the International Olympic Committee (IOC) made a great choice with Brazil and Rio De Janeiro.
Congratulations to Rio de Janeiro and the whole Brazilian people!!! This early I’m thinking of ways on how I can join you in 2016 summer Olympics 😀
