COPENHAGEN, Sept 28 (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama
will fly to Copenhagen on Friday to support Chicago’s bid to
stage the 2016 Summer Olympics, adding formidable weight to
U.S. efforts in a contest that is seen as too close to call.
A personal appearance by Obama, the first by a sitting U.S.
president at an Olympic session, could potentially play a
crucial role in swaying votes by International Olympic
Committee (IOC) members who must choose between Chicago,
Madrid, Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo.
