The USOC has not decided whether it will even present a bid for the 2016 Olympics, but Los Angeles, Chicago, and San Francisco are the final three American cities in the running. Here is a look at their Olympic history:
• L.A. was also presented as a candidate seven other times -- for the 1924, 1928, 1948, 1952, 1956, 1976, and 1980 games -- losing out each time.
• Chicago was also presented as a candidate for the 1952 and 1956 games, losing both times.
