& the winner is….
CHICAGO DROPS OUT OF THE 2016 HOST CITY VOTING PROCESS
1625: Well, isn’t that a turn up for the books? Chicago are eliminated in the first round – cue audible gasps around the auditorium – and a second round of voting opens immediately.
1623: The vote closes and the scrutineers are now checking the results. If there is no majority for one city, remember, the city with the least votes will drop out and another vote will take place.
1622: The first round of voting for the 2016 Olympic Games host city is declared open.
