What do you think about the swedish chances? Should be good since we have never had a winter olympics and are one of the top winter nations, and we have many successfull organized wintersport championships in the past.

I haven't idea.. but if Italy will whitdraw i will hope for a norther european bid :fingers:

I'd say that if any (western) european city makes it to the final candidate stage, they will have it in the bag. The thing is, I don't believe anymore that a western european bid will survive so far (Sion was my best hope).

Sion had the best bid IMO, it’s a real shame to see them withdraw.

 

At this rate whichever bid from either Calgary or Western Europe remains standing will just win by default.

Yes, it had (except for the speed skating thing). I don't believe Switzerland could had a better bid tbh. It's more that possible that we will never see a swiss bid ever again...

Considering the future is really a very, very long time...I'm not going as far as to say 'never' :p 

 

Although I think a South American bid might come sooner than another Swiss one.

All the bids we have have glaring flaws, even Calgary currently plans to hold ski jumping and nordic combined in Whistler along with some ice events in Edmonton. At least Sion had excelent venues for most sports, and while St Moritz was out of the way it has *the* venue for sliding sports.
