Could anyone tell me when will those events happen in Beijing Time ? Thank you.

You are, if I calculated right, about 14 hours ahead of Guatemala City's local time zone. For example, as of this post, you are now in this time period situation:

Tuesday, July 3rd @ 2:49 pm (1449 Hours)

In Guatemala City itself, it was the following:

Tuesday, July 3rd @ 12:49 am (0049 Hours)

So, if dave199 is correct about the 5:00 pm local Guatemala City time announcement, then at your location, the time would be about 7:00 am Beijing local time TOMORROW MORNING!

(From the International Herald Tribune article):

GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala: A glance at the International Olympic Committee vote on Wednesday on the site of the 2014 Winter Olympics.

THE CANDIDATES: Salzburg, Austria; Pyeongchang, South Korea; Sochi, Russia.

THE IOC: The Olympic governing body has 111 members. Ten are royalty. Fourteen are women. Many are former Olympic athletes.

THE VOTERS: Ninety-seven can vote on the first round. Barred are president Jacques Rogge and members whose countries are still in the running: Three Russians, two Koreans, an Austrian and two Germans (one Salzburg event would be held in Germany). Five members are absent.

FINAL PRESENTATIONS: Each city makes a 45-minute presentation to the IOC, with 15 minutes more for questions and answers. Sochi goes first, followed by Salzburg and Pyeongchang.

THE VOTE: Starting at 3:30 p.m. (2130 GMT), IOC members cast secret ballots until one city receives a majority. The city with the fewest votes is eliminated after the first round, and its country's members can vote if there is a second round.

TIEBREAKERS: In the first round, if two cities are tied for second place, they would face a runoff. In the final round, Rogge would ask for a vote of the 15-member executive board to break a tie.

THE ANNOUNCEMENT: The ceremony starts at 5 p.m. (2300 GMT), with Rogge scheduled to open a sealed envelope and announce the winner a few minutes later.

An later add-on quote from the same news source, but from a NEW ARTICLE: "Reward Russia with its first Winter Olympics? Take the games to a new Asian market in South Korea? Or return to the Austrian Alps for the first time in nearly 40 years?"

I got called today to schedule a job interview and when the woman asked if tomorrow at 4 pm UTC was OK I replied positively - totally forgetting about the IOC election :( I'll miss the end of Sochi's presentation and, most likely, all of Salzburg's. I could've perfectly ask her to set the interview for Thursday *stupid*

The announcement will undoubtedly be on MSNBC and CNN, especially with Guatemala being in the CST or the same time zone as Chicago and Mexico City, and only an hour behind NYC.

Umm, Guatemala is actually 2 hors behind New York, I know, it's weird, i'm in the New York time zone, and it's on olympic.org, it's really strange.

Well, I guess the moment is about to occur in about less than 17 hours from now. The local Guatemala City time zone is the same as the Mountain Time Zone for Canada and the USA.

Hey thanks, guess it's just an hour late, since the IOC said it would start at 9:15 CST.

It is scheduled to start 15:15 GMT which is still 10 minutes from now.

Its actually not late, the reason its only starting now is becose Guatemala does not have daily saving time like North America does.

Anyway, Sochi's presentation should start in only a couple of minutes.

I didn't know either before this morning, actually. I realized it when I was checking the time difference between where I live and Guatemala City.

Its now 9:16 in Guatemala, so the presentation should be underway.
