Rio Olympics

If you haven't heard, yesterday the 2016 Olympic games were awarded to Brazilian city Rio De Janeiro.

Rio beat Madrid in the final round of voting after Tokyo and Chicago were eliminated earlier in the day.

The main thing I'm pleased about is that Chicago didn't get it.

I'm just really bored of hearing about, and seeing the Obama's on TV every single day and as native Chicago residents they were obviously involved in the city's bid.

I actually think the US gets too many of the world's big sporting events so it's good that they are spread around more fairly but it's surprising that this will be the first Olympic games held in South America.

Rio knows how to put on a show so I'm sure the games will be a big success.
