Road to Rio

So Rio de Janeiro will host the 2016 Olympics and Chicago will have to settle for (possibly) the 2012 Worldcon.

I'm intrigued that some of the reports I read suggested Rio was the favorite of many IOC members who thought it important that the Olympics move around and go to countries it had not been before. To that extent, it's the same attitude I've seen in many Worldcon races.
