SHARE Rose still pushing for Olympics

Count Derrick Rose among the scores of Chicagoans disappointed that Chicago lost out on its bid for the 2016 Summer Olympics. Rose’s dream was to play on the 2016 United States team in his hometown.

“It hurts,” he said, “but I’m still a candidate for the team and, hopefully, the coaches decide to put me on that team.”

Rose, who turned 21 today, will be just shy of his 28th birthday when the 2016 Olympics are held in Rio de Janeiro.
