Rio's Olympic Win!
Ninety-four International Olympic Committee votes were tallied to eliminate Chicago in the first round of voting in Copenhagen, Denmark. But the city of Chicago Sure position itself and fought hard for the Gold.
Here's the breakdown of the voting:
• Madrid: 28
• Rio: 26
• Tokyo: 22
• Chicago: 18
Most of Chicago's votes seemed to go to Rio in the second round as that city jumped to 46. Madrid had 29 and Tokyo 20. That set up the final round showdown, between Rio and Madrid where Rio came out victorious, 66 to 32.
The round-by-round vote tallies reveal Madrid was on top early and Chicago came up four votes short. But in round two, Tokyo actually lost votes that slid to Rio. By round three, Rio walked proudly away with it. (source: abclocal.go.com)
