Olympics 2016 Announcement Time (video)

In a little over three hours, the International Olympic Committee will announce their decision about which city will win the 2016 Olympic Bid.  Representatives from Chicago, Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo and Madrid all converged on Copenhagen yesterday to list their reasons why their city would be best for the 2016 Olympic games.

World leaders, sports stars and showbiz personalities have all been doing their bit to help swing the IOC votes their way.

President Obama delivered his address before the IOC saying, in part that the U.S. “is ready and eager to assume that sacred trust…I urge you to choose Chicago. And if you do — if we walk this path together — then I promise you this: The city of Chicago and the United States of America will make the world proud.”

First lady Michelle Obama, a native Chicagoan made her speech, and evoked memories of her father, who developed multiple sclerosis in his 30s, noted that as a child she remembers sitting on her father’s lap and cheering for Olympic gymnasts Olga Korbut and Nadia Comaneci. She said: “He taught me how to throw a ball and mean right hook better than anybody in our neighborhood,” breaking into her trademark smile.

    5. The that means of the time period could include things like concrete objects to passing mannerisms. At some point in people’s lives it gets to be some thing that absolutely everyone a person pays awareness to, as transient as it may be. It’s some thing which is obvious on a daily basis and all over the place, and changes swiftly with the seasons.
