Why?

And you're not allowed to give the "because South America has never had one" answer.

St Louis was more than equipped to handel the olymic games when they had then. I think if Atl was worthy, Chicago could have easily of handeled them.

I'm glad Chicago didn't get it, I was never for it while living there...it would have been a tax and traffic nightmare knowing Daley. The taxes and Dan Ryan are already bad enough.

I don't think there was any question about Chicago's ability to "handle" the Olympics...of course a city of that size with so many venues already in place and an established infrastructure could handle it. Atlanta also had the venues and infrastructure required to handle the Olympics.

The whole contest is all about politics...and I believe this one was decided long ago simply because of the whining and moaning about how South America had never hosted. It will be interesting to see how 2016 actually turns out.

So now only Los Angeles and Atlanta are the only ones to host the summer olympics in the US.
