Munch will try again and is getting ready to apply to host the Olympic Winter Games in 2022. Last time around during the bid for 2018 the odds seemed pretty good for Munich to become the first city to host the Summer and the Winter Games.
Some say that with the election of Germany’s Thomas Bach as the new IOC chef the changes for Munich have been greatly reduced, since the bid for 2022 is the first to be awarded under his reign, but I would love to see the Games in Munich and wish them success.
Man, the locations, split between Munich for the ‘ice’ and indoor events and Garmisch-Partenkirchen for the skiing events would be glorious. What a great place.
