Another interesting fact: seven first-round winners ended up losing in the final round:

PyeongChang 2014

PyeongChang 2010

Beijing 2000

Athens 1996

Sofia 1992

Sapproro 1984

Moscow 1976

Point is, frontrunners should be wary of IOC members' alternative voting preference when their first choice gets eliminated.

Yes, but majority of SOG first round winners end up winning the final round. This trend has seen some movement with 1996 and 2000, but I don't foresee Chicago having the most votes in the first round which makes me extra nervous.

Stirthesoul & others - cool it, and stop this crap. If you keep it up I surely do not want you supporting Chicago's bid.
