Sizing Up 2016 Olympic Competitors

The Chicago Daily Herald has a nice article summing up some of the competitors for the Olympics:

Madrid was already a strong finalist for the 2012 Games and knows what it's doing. Rio de Janeiro is benefiting from the fact that the supposedly international Olympics have never been hosted in South America. Tokyo has the experience of having hosted the Games in 1964 and is in the midst of a 10-year improvement plan.

As I've said before, I think Rio is Chicago's main competitor because of the reason listed above.
