  • [01] Chicago's Olympics bid in Athens

    The visiting mayor of Chicago, Richard M. Daley, met with US diplomats in Athens on Monday, including US envoy Daniel Speckhard, as the veteran Illinois politician heads a municipal delegation that arrived in Greece to promote the "Windy City's" bid for the 2016 Olympic Games.

    "I'm very excited about the prospect of Chicago hosting these Games ... It's a fantastic city and close to my heart, since I grew up in the American Midwest; and Chicago is a great city to carry on the ancient Olympic tradition, started here in Greece, of bringing athletes together in the spirit of peace and friendship," Speckhard said.

    Meanwhile, in a separate development, the US embassy on Tuesday will host a large US delegation in Greece for this year's Posidonia maritime trade show, which begins in the Greek capital this week. The delegation will include some 30 delegates from Louisiana, representing the city of New Orleans, the Port of South Louisiana, the port of New Orleans and the state of Louisiana.
