Much harder than the Summer Olympics one. Most major cities are not in places that would be suitable for ski jumping.

Damn. After Innsbruck I was thinking Garmisch-Partenkirchen, because of the ski jump competition around New Year's. Then I thought, yeah it was ski jump, not olympics. So didn't enter that. Also spelling "Sochi" is impossible, because here they spell it "Sotsi" and I keep trying to spell it in "English" with a "t".

So you spelled Garmisch-Partenkirchen with no problem, but Sochi was not only difficult, but impossible?!

There are no transliteration issues for Garmisch-Partenkirchen - you either do, or don't, know how to spell it, whereas for Sochi, you can know the perfectly correct spelling in one language, and learn it's not accepted on here because some other language perfectly arbitrarily decided to transliterate in differently.

I agree, it would be awesome to see some new places. It costs SO much money to put them on, though.

Beijing in 2022? How many cities have hosted both a summer and a winter olympics before? I think that's the only one, right?

They could probably do a winter olympics in Stockholm... there was a summer one held there in 1912.

Munich made a losing bid for the 2018 winter olympics. There are some rumours for a Stockholm bid for 2026, but nothing concrete yet.

But if Munich got a winter bid, I think most of the actual "snow" events would have to be conducted down in the Garmisch area. Somebody can correct me if there are ski slopes, etc. in the local Munich neighborhood.

Also, Helsinki could easily host a winter olympics, and Oslo a summer olympics.

I'm pretty surprised that the IOC went for mountain sports on artificial snow. In 2015, there was no snow at all on the proposed slopes. Unless 2022 experiences freakish snowfall, they are going to truck in or manufacture every flake. Seems insane.

It's because no one else wanted to bid because the IOC's ridiculous demands. Oslo pulled their bid which left Beijing and Almaty, Kazakhstan.

Exactly, it's insane. Almaty has plenty of snow every winter, I really don't understand why Beijing won.

First you have to have a group of people put in the position to choose a winner. Then you have to look after those people when they arrive to check on your facilities. Then you have to make sure that they will be looked after when they head off back to vote. You then have to make sure you can reward those people after the decision has been made. Lastly you have to keep your mouth shut regarding your dealings and more importantly be trusted by those people to keep your mouth shut.

I had no idea where the 2022 Winter Olympics will be held, so I guessed Qatar, since that makes about as much sense as having the World Cup played there.

Really? At least accept Pyongchang, as that's Google's autocorrecting to.

I only got Vancouver and Sochi because of the Mario and Sonic games. In fact, the only places I know that Olympic Games were held are the ones that have Mario and Sonic games
