Day 24: 2016 bid

The 2016 bid for the olympics in Chicago was a three year journey that ended unsuccessfully.  Chicago was up against Madrid, Spain; Tokyo, Japan and Rio De Janerio, Brazil.  Earning a 7.0 in the Application phase and being considered a favorite when entering into the voting process in Oct 2009, Chicago was eliminated in the first round in the IOC (International Olympic Committee) vote.  

Throughout the IOC visit to Chicago, the city rallied behind the Olympic bid and showcased the logo throughout the skyline.
