I don't even think there was a conspiracy that Rio got it. I remember at the end of the Beijing games, Bob Costas made a big deal about who Rio was
a front runner for the Olympics and that South America had never had it.
Considering that one of the goals of the Olympics is to bring the world together, it makes perfect sense that Rio got it instead of places that have
had the Olympics before.
As an American, I was glad that Chicago didn't have get it, considering that we've had the Olympics at least three hundred thousand times.
