Chicago Olympic Venues Approved by International Federations

The Chicago Tribune is reporting that the International federations of sports that participate in the Olympics have approved all of Chicago's proposed venues for the 2016 games. All other competitors (Rio, Tokyo and Madrid) have announced similar approvals.

Of more interest is the looming February 12th due date for the 'bid books' to the IOC. At this time, all applicant cities will publicly unveil their detailed plans for everything from venues to financing to impact on the city (among other things).
