If Rio gets the 2016 Summer Olympics, do they get to hold them in January or do they hold it in winter?

Just curious.

The 2000 Sydney Olympics ran from September 16-October 1, "early Spring"- average temperatures mid 60s F. IIRC, people complained some about the cold weather in outdoor events.

The 1956 Melbourne games ran later, November 22- December 8


Rio is a little more tropical, about 73 degrees in October, so that would work. I don't think they ever want to push it too late.

September and October are open for me in 2016 so they can go ahead.

Whatever month they had the Olympics in Sydney will probably be the month they'd have the games in Rio.

I'm not saying who is on my ignore list and who isn't but if people keep quoting people on my ignore list I might just add some more to the extremely large list.

All the events in Chicago are scheduled for the Southside as you enter from Indiana aren't they?

They're gonna be held in Gary. We'll turn it into a showcase city.

The venues are gonna be all over Chicago and some Indiana venues will also be used from what I've read. The wiki page for the 2016 Olympic bid for Chi has a lot of good information of how they are planning to hold the games.

I really don't want one, but it did seem like a good place for that smilie since I have never used it before.

Go to Wiki type in 2016 Olympics Chicago and you should get it. It has pretty much the whole bid on there.
