Friday Trivia

Here's today's challenge:

The IOC awarded Rio de Janeiro the 2016 Summer Olympic Games today, making Rio only the third city in the southern hemisphere to host the games. To date the Olympic Games have been held 44 times (26 in the summer, 18 in the winter) but only twice south of the equator. Name the two southern hemisphere cities to have hosted the Olympics. (Bonus points for naming the years in which they hosted.)
