As long as America and other Western countries continue to open their doors to the best and brightest from the developing world, they will continue to forge ahead with this much needed "new blood" while African countries will continue to regress thanks to backward laws which do not even allow their own native born citizens to keep their nationality if they acquire that of another country. But I guess that is another story for another time. Go Chicago!!!

Congratulations on the efforts of your group, Mr Tande. However, I'm sure you'll agree that there's still a lot of work to do to convince the European and Asian blocs that Chicago is a better fit than say Spain or Japan.
Keep up the good work and oh, nice tie too!:))

Makuna T.

Sola, you make a very good point. My commentary and assessment is only for a snapshot moment. You are correct: Asia will mostly support Tokyo; S. America will support Rio; and Europe will align with Madrid. Africa and other more neutral locations remain a battle field. Spain and Japan will be very strong in the home stretch. My biased assessment may not reflect the reading of the IOC voters but we are hopeful.

Ooh its so sad to see Brazil celedrating this event which was to be in the home city of Chicago.Two event World cup and Olympics.
Non the less we are waiting for the pictures of what went on at Copenhagen.
Makuna should not be an exception cos we are awere he is there.
Hopefully,Freeman Pele and others will help in the champaign for 2020.
