well, 3rd time's the charm as they say. I don't think PC will fail the 3rd time. Just as Rio won because it is virgin Olympic territory, Munich has already hosted a Summer Olympix and Garmisch has already hosted a WOG. Korea/PC has yet to host a WOG. Simple math.

It's not just simple math... For winter games the continental rotation is not a law... And Stochi is not consider like Europeen city, it's another territory... The Sweden has already bid 4 times without victory and i think Sweden it's more legytim than Korea for Winter games

It's all very well to say PC has rotation on its side. But it also had it on side for 2010 and 2014.

Really, I'd call it as a two-horse race between PC and Munich (sorry Annecy, I just can't see it happening).

Munich's by far my preferred bidder, but it does look like PC have been active early and to my mind have probably the early lead in campaigning. But this is waaaaaaayy too early to really set much store by at this stage. With well over a year to go, it's up for grabs still.

Not really for 2010, on the heels of Beijing 2008. Granted, they're different Games season, but some say that was also another element of why New York failed for 2012 because of Vancouver.

And some go even further to say that's mainly why Vancouver won 2010 so it could further put Europe in a much better position for 2012 & make any North American candidate geographically hindered.

For 2014, the rotation was more on PC's side, but 2018 does definitely look like it's the best fit for rotation for Pyeong Chang.

1. And some go even further to say that's mainly why Vancouver won 2010 so it could further put Europe in a much better position for 2012 & make any North American candidate geographically hindered.

1. Certainly that's a more devious spin to it.

2. Well, there's always a spoiler thrown in, and of course, it was Putin and Russian oil cash which I think PC didn't know how to counter.

Yeah, an IOC devious spin. It's something that Dick Pound talks about in his book "inside the Olympics", because a lot of the IOC members who don't come from Winter tradition sporting nations could care less of where the Winter Olympic Games actually go, especially if it means for a better position if one of their nations is/wants bidding for the next cycle.
