I hope the Winter Games will come back to Europe :fingers:

Makes sense, they are already hosting in 2028. This helps Canada should they submit a bid.

In case there is a European bid it would be ridiculous if Canada gets to host the games though, since they already hosted the games in 2010.

You're probably right. 16 years would be the shortest time span for a nation to host the winter games twice. It also doesn't help that Europe hasn't hosted in a while either. 2030 is more plausible though if there is little competition we may sneak in.

At that point, ANY european bid should win versus ANY other bid.

 

To Canada to host the Winter Games 16 years afer Vancouver is ridiuclous. I really hope It won't happen (and if it means Sapporo, so be it)

Until a European city can mount a bid without losing a referendum and public support, Calgary is a shoo-in for 2026.

No, I'd rather take Canada again than another winter olympics in Asia. Now before Pyeong Chang has started saying you don't have a problem with Olympics in Asia is easy but I bet after China 2022 you'll be sick of standing up at 3 in the morning to watch olympic winter games.

Sweden would be cool on paper but again I'm not too happy about the exact locations of the events. As far as I know they would make the Nordic events in Fallun, alpine skiing events in Are and all sorts of ice skating events in Stockholm. That's logical since those are existing facilities but the distances between these places make the already big distances in Switzerland and Austria look tiny. 

What really surprises me is that Germany seemingly doesn't care about the Winter Olympics anymore. Munich made a bid for 2018 as far as I remember, and that actually was a really good one, since they really have almost everything that's needed for Olympic games in Bavaria. (Nordic events in Oberstdorf, alpine skiing in Garmisch, luge in Königssee, speed skating in Inzell, Biathlon in Ruhpolding and there is an exsting olympic park in Munich with many arenas where other events could take place) I think there was the idea of making Olympic winter games in Saxony, but although they do have a few facilities there (Altenberg, Klingenthal) I don't think that plan was ever very close to becoming real.

yes, Stockholm has this problem, but i would like that countries who are traditional strong but still did not host WOG like Sweden and Finland will finally do it + Almaty :d

 

After them Austria, Switzerland and Germany would be nice too as lot of time passed since they hosted it

The city council of Lillehammer is moving on with their plans. They are considering working together with Oslo , Bergen , Stavanger and Trondheim , which will be a very widespread olympics.

 

Now it depends on the government. They didn't back the Oslo 2022 bid because of IOC extreme demands. Maybe they will back Lillehammer , as it will not be as expansive as proposed Oslo games. 

 

The norwegian population is split on the topic. A lot of us does not want a norwegian olympics right now.

 

Norwegian IOC member Gerhard Heiberg is positive on another Lillehammer olympics.

I am still really in Sion's corner, I think Switzerland is super overdue to host another winter games (...and I really want to see Olympic sliding sports at St. Moritz in my lifetime), but at this point any Western European or Scandinavian country hosting would do the IOC a world of good.

 

...though if Calgary wins, eh, won't be mad.

Agree. I am norwegian and wants another olympics eventually. But Switzerland hasn't hosted since 1948  , and as one of the big winter sports nations they really deserve a new olympics.
