It's official... Minutes ago history was made! Rio De Janeiro, Brazil was chosen to host the summer 2016 olympic and Paralympic games! Rio De Janeiro is the first South American country to ever host the games. The other countries shortlisted were Madrid, Tokyo, Rio, and Chicago. Chicago seems to be taking it hard (which is where President Obama is from)... WHY?!?! In my opinion Chicago should be happy they avoided the craziness... People don't seem to realize that profit is rarely made for cities hosting the olympics and the citizens are stuck paying these ridiculous expenses for years!
