AustralianFan Posted December 11, 2021 Report Share Posted December 11, 2021 Three strong former Winter Games Hosts now vying for 2030: Sapporo 1972 Salt Lake City 2002 Vancouver 2010 Although Vancouver 2030 is making a late charge, the reality is that is the most recent of the former Winter Olympic Games hosts. Vancouver still has all it’s recent and newer Olympic Venues, so similar to it’s rivals SLC 2030 and Sapporo 2030. It’s not really like the Brisbane 2032 situation when late bidders like Jakarta and Budapest expressed late interest in 2032 but really it was too little too late from them. As late-comers, neither the ‘too-little, too-late’ expressions of interest in 2032 by Jakarta or Budapest were backed up as having hosted before and they could not align thenselves with the New Norm by using existing facilities. So recent Winter Olympic Host Vancouver is not at a disadvantage compared to Sapporo or Salt Lake City. Remember IOC Future has not yet elevated any 2030 candidature to Targeted Dialogue as preferred bidder. All three need to still satisfy the New Norm requirements including the all-important support of their citizens. Sapporo needs to get cracking with it’s long-awaited public survey of it’s citizens ….
