On the way to Olympic Games

 Summer Olympic Games 2016 will take place from August 5th to August 21st 2016, in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). This will become the first Games held in South America and the second in Latin America (Olympic Games in Mexico, 1968). For the first time since the year 2000 the Games will be staged in the southern hemisphere of our planet. As the organizers have decided some competitions of the Olympics will be also staged in Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, Manaus, Salvador and São Paulo.

   The bidding process for the event organization has started since May 2007. The wish to host the Games was expressed by Baku (Azerbaijan), Quatar, Madrid (Spain), Prague (Czech Republic), Tokio (Japan), Chicago (the USA) and Saint Petersburg (Russia). By the way, Saint Petersburg delayed its intention to participate in the bidding contest as it was granted the right to arrange the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. In 2008 there were four cities winning to host the event: Madrid, Rio de Janeiro, Tokio and Chicago. The final voting was held on 2nd October, 2009 at the 121 International Olympic Committee Session in Copenhagen (Denmark). On the results of three tours of voting Rio de Janeiro was awarded the right to host the Summer Olympic Games 2016.
