Chicago 2016 Update: Daley off to Rio

It’s finally time to scope out the competition.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported today that Mayor Richard M. Daley is flying to Rio to check out the 2007 Pan American Games down in Rio de Janeiro, arguably the city that poses the biggest risk to Chicago picking up the 2016 Olympic bid.

Chicago 2016 bid brass will also get to talk to members of the International Olympic Committee in hopes of furthering their cause.

On an unrelated note, I’d like to welcome Brian Edwards into the Chicago 2016 blog community.
