An online push for Chicago's 2016 Olympic bid is getting residents involved in promoting the city. Chicago 2016 is asking everyday Chicagoans to tell the world "Why Chicago" through a new website, Chicago2016Channel.com. Chicagoans are invited to post videos and stories about why they think the city should host the 2016 Summer Games.

The website launched on Wednesday.

"As a city renowned for our passion, civic pride, love of sports and great sense of humor we know that no one can tell our story better than our own people," said Chicago 2016 Chairman and CEO Patrick G. Ryan. "We are asking all of those who believe in bringing the world to Chicago for the 2016 Olympic Games to tell their own story of "Why Chicago" by creating videos to be shared with the world."
