Olympics In The Windy City

CHICAGO (AP) -- A U-S Olympic Committee inspection team began its exploration of Chicago today with a stop at McCormick Place.

The convention center would host fencing, table tennis, rhythmic gymnastics and judo competitions if Chicago is picked as the host of the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Before boarding a bus for their tour of suggested Olympic venues, the eleven-member inspection team passed by a heckler who told U-S-O-C officials that the games would displace the poor.

The U-S-O-C will decide in April whether Chicago or Los Angeles will get to make a bid.

Officials visited Los Angeles last week.

The International Olympic Committee won't select the Olympic host until 2009.
