Lord David Posted January 22, 2010 Report Share Posted January 22, 2010 Munich will be a very strong contender for 2022 should they lose 2018. They got sentimentality on their side what with the whole 50 years since the Summer Olympics thing, as well as being the first joint hosts. Then there's the proposed venue construction in their 2018 bid, some of which might be built regardless of the Olympics further boosts a Munich bid. Should Denver bid, it will be strong, but perhaps not as strong enough as Munich, which has almost all venues readily available. Reno could potentially host, but the concept of Reno-Lake Tahoe is just corny. Bozeman, could host, should the IOC get wowed over the whole concept of a small town Winter Olympics again. They got a regional airport at nearby Belgrade, the Belgrade town arena could host Curling, the Bozeman arena could host Ice Hockey preliminaries. They have 3 or so major ski resorts within an hours or so drive, and supposedly a "world class" biathlon venue. Their university of Montana could house the Olympic Village, whilst the stadium could host ceremonies in an augmented/upgraded 30,000 or so. It would be interesting, even if it's not likely possible.
