Possibility of ‘Again Pyeongchang’ in the difficulty of deciding the host of the 2030 Winter Olympics

Attention is focusing on whether Pyeongchang will be able to see the excitement and passion of the Winter Olympics once again.

The Associated Press reported on the 14th (Korean time) that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is considering a plan to fix some cities in North America, Asia, Europe, etc.

According to the Associated Press, the number of candidate cities to host the Winter Olympics has decreased due to the burden of stadium construction costs. Pyeongchang, Salt Lake City in the US, Vancouver in Canada, Switzerland, Italy, and Scandinavian countries were mentioned as candidate cities. 온라인바카라

Retired ‘ski empress’ Lindsay Vonn (USA), who serves on the Winter Olympics bidding committee in Salt Lake City, said in a recent interview with The Associated Press, “It is becoming difficult to find a city that will host the Winter Olympics due to climate change and problems with facilities. “(For this reason, rotational holdings) discussions actually took place. Rotational holdings can utilize existing facilities to meet standards (elevation of slopes, etc.) and reduce costs,” he said. However, Bourne predicted that “we know that discussions are ongoing, but we do not know how soon they will be implemented. Rotation will not be implemented until 2034.”

The recent Winter Olympics were held in Pyeongchang in 2018 and in Beijing in 2022, followed by Milan and Cortina d’Ampezzo in Italy in 2026. The host of the Olympics is usually decided seven years in advance, but the IOC recently delayed a decision on the 2030 Games. Initially, the 2030 host country was scheduled to be announced at the 140th IOC General Assembly to be held in Mumbai, India in September and October, but it was postponed due to climate change and other reasons. While it has been confirmed that Salt Lake City, Vancouver, and Sapporo, Japan have applied to host the 2030 Olympics, in December of last year, the city of Sapporo announced that it would conduct a public opinion poll asking citizens to hold the Olympics, taking a step back from hosting the Games.
