Chicago 2016 Candidate File Delivered To IOC Thursday – Minor Changes

Olympic legend Jesse Owen's grandson Stuart Owen Rankin has delivered Chicago 2016's 568 page Candidate File Thursday to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) headquarters in Lausanne Switzerland.

The bid book reportedly contains only minor changes from its applicant file, which includes a decision to move the aquatics centre closer to the Olympic stadium to hold the swimming competition in a temporary pool and to move the shooting venue closer to the city.

Bid President Lori Healey said of the changes, "I think that really speaks to how solid the plan was to begin with. It's a lot of decisions about what do we want to highlight, what do we want to really focus on, how do we ensure the evaluation commission (visiting the city April 4-7) is aware of support for the bid throughout the city.

Chicago 2016 will be releasing an overview of the contents of the file on February 13.

The bid book "Chicago 2016" , "Madrid 2016", "Rio 2016" and "Tokyo 2016" now available @ Olympic Resource Centre for reference!
