Why did Atlanta host the 1996 Olympics?

I can't remember much about it but why was that city chosen over Toronto , Athens, many other world cities?

And why was it ever chosen over New York, Chicago, Miami, San Francisco, Detroit?

What's so special about it? What was the reason for them hosting it?

  • Because they applied and had the better presentation, in eyes of the IOC, which lastly decides where the olympics take place. It took them two years to decide, so I believe the decision was right.

    • Yeah but I just can't see why it was picked over other places.
