Chicago - 0, Rio - 1, New Delhi - Minus 4

So, Chicago lost the bid to host the 2016 Summer Olympics despite President Obama's presence to support the city's bid.

May be, the former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich would have been more suited to the job.

Now that 2016 has gone to Rio and Copacabana, where does that leave sadi Delhi?

I think we can forget about Delhi 2020.

Although, considering the population of Asia, it won't be illogical to expect that in 2020, it should be an Asian city'g turn to host the Games.

But that Asian city would most likely be a South Korean or Japanese city, not an Indian one.

That would mean 2024 would go to an African nation - it should really.

So, the earliest India can eye hosting the Olympics appears to be 2028 or 2032.

I don't see myself hanging around anywhere near this planet at that time!!!
