Failed Summer Olympic Bids

Enter the names of cites lucky enough to fail in their bid to host the Summer Olympics. Cities eventually successful after a failed bid are not included. Cuotak has a similar quiz asking for the second place bid for each Summer Olympics http://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/38391/failed-olympics-bids but this quiz ask for all cities which bid and never succeeded. Note: Chicago won its bid but did not host the Olympics in 1904. St Louis held the Olympics as part of the World's Fair.
