Summer Olympics In South America?

Recommended Posts

South America has many great cities, however, none of them ever get to hold the summer olypics. In the future, do you believe there's a posibility of a South American city geting a chance to hold the Summer Olympics? If so, which cities could possibly win it?

I feel that if a South American city can put up an excellent bid they will certainly have the edge to host the games. Some possibilities...

Buenos Aires, Argentina - It lost in attempts in 1968 and 2004, so they have some experience with the process, I think it would be a matter of support public/private to really escalate their bid to contention level in 2016.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - Is officially the country's Olympic candidate for 2016. It had failed to make the short list in 2004 & 2012, however they do host the Pan Am Games in 2007 so that could be a warm up to prove they can handle a large scale event.

Chile, as far as I know, a Chilean city hasn't even made a serious bid for the Oympics yet, however, if a frontrunner emerged, I'd think they'd have just a good of shot to win as the aforementioned cities.
