W hen you looked at some of the plans Leipzig looked really interesting - but we all know the bids aren't purely judged on technical merit. Against the big boys of 2012 it was always a no win situation.

LONDON 2012 - THE XXX OLYMPIC GAMES
GLASGOW 2014 - THE XX COMMONWEALTH GAMES

Well, in the k.o. rounds Stuttgart dropped out first, Frankfurt dropped out next followed by Düsseldorf - Hamburg was runner up - Leipzig won with 81:51

 

Hamburg became first and Leipzig second in the evaluation of the German NOC.

 

I esteem the choice of Leipzig as a political decision, since the German NOC must had been aware that in an international competition a city like Leipzig has no chance at all. Leipzig was always a sport centre in Germany indeed, but it has not the level of recognition outside Germany. Many politicians supported the and hoped for "second wonder" for the former eastern part of Germany...

They want to eliminate a stumbling block, but I fear that they create a new stumbling block for the IOC by shifting the biathlon and cross-country to Ruhpolding. The article doesn't even raise the question what will happen to the nordic combined events then. It's 150 kilometres (93 miles) from Garmisch-Partenkirchen (where the ski jumps are located) to Ruhpolding, an almost two-hour drive by car (not to mention that busses used for team transportation are slower, of course) because there's no fast motorway leading directly from Garmisch to Ruhpolding, you have to drive quite a stretch on Bundes- or Landesstraßen (federal or state roads, i.e. normal roads leading directly through cities, with traffic lights, slower speeds and so on). If there weren't the nordic combined events, you could still somehow argue that the Games and their events aren't that much stretched out across southern Bavaria.

 

I suppose that Munich needs to have a rather weak opposition in order to win the Games despite that serious question that will be raised for sure.

When Oslo are planning to use the Lillehammer venues, its almost like they want to let Barcelona into the race :huh:

I think that Oslo still has a more compact venue plan than the (proposed) plan for Munich 2022. Munich would have alpine events 90 kilometres from the main host city plus biathlon and cross-country events 115 kilometres from the main host city plus sledding events 160 kilometres from the main host city. Oslo, on the other hand would have more events (including biathlon and cross-country) directly in the city or in its immediate surroundings - while only the alpine events would take place 240 kilometres away in Kvitfjell and the sledding events would take place 200 kilometres away in Hunderfossen. Those are very large distances by Winter Olympic standards but at least they would have only two venue clusters as opposed to Munich's three. Plus: In Oslo the nordic combined events could take place in a very compact venue - nothing beats Holmenkollen in that regard.

But Oslo's public support is faltering.

Yeah... Oslo's plan is more compact, but Munich makes a more attractive option.
