It was chosen to host the 1904 Summer Olympics, but they were moved to St. Louis by a 14-2 decision of the International Olympic Committee. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) first acknowledged Chicago's candidacy for the 2016 Summer Olympics and Paralympics on September 14, 2007. On January 18, 2008, the IOC announced that Chicago had been selected over New York City as the host city for the next summer games.
The IOC awarded the Games to Chicago at its meeting in Buenos Aires on September 13, 2009. This is the second time that Chicago has hosted the Olympics; the city also hosted the Summer Olympics from 1908 to 1924.
Chicago made a candidacy for the Summer Olympics in 2016. On June 4, 2008, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) chose Madrid, Spain, Tokyo, Japan, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Chicago, United States, over Baku, Azerbaijan, Doha, Qatar, and Prague, Czech Republic.
The city of Chicago submitted its candidacy on January 9, 2005. At the time it was announced, the city was pursuing both the summer and winter games. However, after failing to reach an agreement with the IOC regarding broadcasting rights, Chicago withdrew from the winter game process on March 8, 2005.
Because Chicago is a cold city, and cold climates don't suit everyone's taste in romance!
According to legend, when Chicago was first being developed there were two opposing camps about where to build its town center. The supporters of each camp made a pact that if they couldn't come to an agreement, then each would go ahead and build their dream city. Today, we know this place as Chicago.
There are several theories as to why the two groups came to such an agreement, but no one knows for sure. What we do know is that both cities were built with beauty and style at the forefront of everyone's minds.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, hosted the 2016 Summer Olympics, becoming the third Southern Hemisphere city to do so following Melbourne, Australia, in 1956 and Sydney, Australia, in 2000, as well as the first South American city to do so.
You may have noticed that the Olympiad is still tallied even when no games are held. See also the list of Olympic bid cities for each cycle. We also have a list of each of the host cities' time zones and latitude. Tokyo will host the next Olympic Games in 2021.
The People's Republic of China has hosted the Games once, with a second event planned for 2022. Bids that did not succeed: Beijing will be the first city to host both the summer and winter Olympics.

Specifically, the Summer Olympics in 2024. The selection of an Olympic city is a lengthy and complicated process, and Dallas, which submitted a candidacy to the US Olympic Committee, is allegedly one of seven that the USOC is considering.
The United States has hosted the most Olympic Games of any country—eight in all! The 2028 games are being held in Los Angeles, California (which will be here before you know it!). These other cities have also hosted events. Summer Games in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1904.
The Summer Olympics will return to Los Angeles in 2028, more than four decades after the city last hosted the Games in 1984.
The United States hosts the Olympic Games. Summer Games in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1904. Lake Placid, New York (1932 and 1980 Winter Games) Summer Games in Los Angeles in 1932 and 1984 (also chosen to host the 2028 Summer Olympics) Winter Games 1960 in Squaw Valley, California; Summer Games 1996 in Atlanta, Georgia; and Winter Games 2002 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
A possible proposal for 2024 New York was considered as a prospective candidate for the 2024 Summer Olympics after the USOC reached a new revenue sharing deal with the IOC in May 2012, however Mayor Bill de Blasio chose not to bid in May 2014.
If New York City is not chosen by the United States Olympic Committee, it is possible that another city could be selected instead. Los Angeles was proposed as a potential replacement city in January 2013 but this idea was later dismissed by USOC CEO Scott Blackmun.
New York has been known to host major events before, including the 1964 World's Fair and the 1939 World's Fair. These events do not qualify as official Games, but they do show that the city is capable of hosting large events.
In September 2017, mayor Bill de Blasio announced that NYC would not be bidding for the 2024 Olympics due to costs that would be incurred by the city. This comes after the USOC had already selected Atlanta as the host city for the games. However, he did say that the city would support any other bid for the games. No other city has stepped up to replace NYC on the list of candidates.
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) does not take such a decision lightly. The important competition was not skipped even when the Olympic Committee chose to stagger the games so that the Winter and Summer Olympics were not staged in the same year but at two-year intervals.
When World Events Disrupted the Olympics, 1: 1920: Germany was barred from participating.
