iceman530 posted a topic in 2030 Olympic Winter Games BidsNeeds its own thread now. Strong candidate for night in shining armor. Not a perfect bid, but in line with reformed Olympics bids. Super far away between Stockholm and Are, but given we are gravitating away from "hubs" as evidenced by the Italian and Chinese bids, this is feasible. It would be the biggest gap yet, but thats not even the biggest challenge. Biggest challenge is getting city council and public support. As always, if that doesnt happen, its sunk. Is there any hope for the Swedes deciding on a different outcome this time? If they do, I would strongly assess a Stockholm/Are 2030 and SLC 2034 double award. Article also notes that July 2024 seems to be the "No Later Than" deadline the IOC is giving itself. That lines up with what a lot of people were assessing on here. Sweden emerges as sudden front-runner to host 2030 Olympics (gazettetimes.com) Interesting blurb from the article: The IOC has pointed Swedish officials to a July 2024 deadline — at its members’ meeting on the eve of the Paris Olympics — to find a 2030 Winter Games host. At just 5-1/2 years before the opening ceremony, it would be the latest pick of a games host for any modern Olympics.
