Posted in Chicago 2016, International Olympic Committee (IOC), Summer Olympic Games at 9:14 pm by Thomas

We are very excited to report that it was announced today in Athens, Greece by the IOC that Chicago made the short list for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games.  The three(3) other cites that made the short list are Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro and Madrid.  All indications are that Chicago holds a slight lead over Tokyo but Rio and Madrid are not far behind.  The final announcement will be made October 2, 2009 in Copenhagen, Denmark roughly a year before the World Equestrian Games come to Kentucky.
