Six cities in final list for 2022 winter Games

15 November 2013, 13:16

Berlin - Six cities, including former summer Games hosts Beijing and Stockholm, have launched bids to host the 2022 winter Olympics, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) said on Friday.

Oslo, which hosted the 1952 winter Games, is also in the mix along with Krakow in Poland, Kazakhstan's Almaty and Ukraine's Lviv.

Beijing hosted the 2008 Olympics and Stockholm staged the Games in 1912. The deadline for submissions passed on Thursday.

"I am delighted that six cities are bidding to host the 2022 Olympic Winter Games," said IOC President Thomas Bach.

"These cities and their supporters clearly understand the benefits that hosting the Games can have and the long-lasting legacy that a Games can bring to a region."

Only three cities bid for the 2018 winter Olympics, which were awarded to Pyeongchang.

Russia's Sochi will stage the 2014 edition in February.
