CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago's taking a day to celebrate before getting back into the competition to host the 2016 Summer Olympics.
Mayor Richard Daley and other officials will tout Chicago's selection as the U-S Olympic Committee's choice at a noon rally in Daley Plaza.
The U-S-O-C chose Chicago over Los Angeles to represent America in the international competition for the Olympics on Saturday. Chicago won over the U-S-O-C despite lacking key venues.
The city's next task is to persuade the International Olympic Committee that it deserves to be the host. Other expected bidders include Madrid, Prague, Rome, Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo.
The I-O-C will award the Games in October 2009.
