Stockholm Opts Out Of 2022 Winter Olympic Bid

Stockholm Sweden won’t bid for the 2022 Winter Olympic Games, Stockholm’s ruling Moderate party said Friday.

Reuters reports that the Moderate party said in a statement, “arranging a Winter Olympics would mean a big investment in new sports facilities, for example for the bobsleigh and luge.

“There isn’t any need for that type of that kind of facility after an Olympics”.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) said in November that six cities, including Stockholm, had launched a bid for the 2024 Games.
