The Tribune has the final tallies from the IOC's vote. Madrid was the surprise leader after round one but it seems most of those who voted for Chicago threw their support behind Rio come Round 2 and Tokyo supporters followed suit.
Here's how it shook out.
- Round 1: Madrid - 28, Rio - 26, Tokyo - 22, and Chicago - 18
- Round 2: Rio - 46, Madrid - 29, and Tokyo - 20
- Final Round: Rio - 66 and Madrid - 32
