Kenadian Posted November 18, 2013 Report Share Posted November 18, 2013 It isn't a threat. It is just the reality. Are is the only resort in Sweden that has the required vertical for the men's downhill. And while it was very close to winning the 1994 Olympics, Ostersund is now simply too small to host the Winter Olympics. Stockholm has the infrastructure, size and facilities to host all of the other Olympic Winter events, but needs Are for the Alpine events. So if the IOC tells Sweden that the distance is too great for them to allow the bid to proceed to the Candidate Phase, then the best Sweden can ever hope for is a Youth Winter Olympics based in Ostersund, but their quest for the real show will be over.
