ghost1 Posted January 22, 2008 Report Share Posted January 22, 2008 The Bulgarian NOC is considering a bid with Sofia for the 2012 Winter YOG: Link (only in bulgarian) it says: Същевременно БОК обмисля вариант София да се кандидатира за първите зимни олимпийски младежки игри за през 2012-а. BOC is considering the option for Sofia to bid for the first Winter Youth Olympic Games in 2012."The venues aren't that expensive and a good reception could raise our rating for a real Olympics", said the head of the NOc, Stefka Kostadinova. I think that if Sofia bids for the 2012 Winter YOG, this bid will have better chances than the 2014 Winter OG one. Sofia has Vitosha mountain 20 minutes from the city centre and although Vitosha wouldn't be able to accomodate all the sport venues for an Olympic Games at this stage, the existing facilities would be suitable for an YOG. Moreover there are numerous sport venues existing in Sofia for all the ice disciplines so that there won't be much new construction, a guideline by the IOC. What do you think of the chances of such bid? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
