A first for Rio
Hello all. This won't be a long blog than normal because today was a shocking day for both Chicago and Rio de Janeiro. Chicago was eliminated in the first round of voting from Coppenhagen today, and just about over ten minutes ago, Rio has won the bid over Madrid for to host the 2016 Summer Olympics which is the very first for South America. I want to wish my fellow blogger, Bianca Mansur lots of congratulations as the games will be coming to Rio. For me here in Chicago, I'm disappointed and shocked that the vote came and went so quickly after everybody worked so hard to make this dream a reality, but there's 2020 and I know I'm not giving up on the Olympic dream yet. Thanks for reading, have a nice weekend and again, many congratulations to Rio on their Olympic dreams coming true in 2016.
