Mayor Daley is in Greece awaiting a major announcement about the 2016 Olympic Games. On Wednesday, the International Olympic Committee will narrow its list of potential cities. Chicago is expected to make the cut.

In a phone interview from Greece Monday morning, the mayor said Chicago is an excellent choice because it's a global city.

The cities that make Wednesday's cut will compete against each other for the 2016 Summer Games.

A final decision is not expected until October 2009.
