    Which city do you think sould win the right to host the 2018 Winter Olympic?

    1. Annecy
    2. Munich
    3. Pyeongchang

    President Lee Myung-bak on Monday rehearsed his presentation for PyeongChang’s 2018 Olympic bid to win over International Olympic Committee members in Durban, South Africa.

    Along with his aides and officials of the PyeongChang committee, Lee reviewed his presentation to be made on Wednesday, South Africa time, during the IOC session. It is the mountain resort town’s third bid for the Winter Olympic Games.

    Lee is also scheduled to hold a joint interview with five major foreign news agencies and Olympic-related media to promote PyeongChang’s merits and his government’s strong support for the 2018 Games to be hosted there.

    Upon arrival in Durban Saturday night, Lee has been holding meetings, visiting officials on the PyeongChang committee and rehearsing the presentation.

    PyeongChang narrowly lost to Vancouver in the competition for the 2010 Olympics and then to Russia’s Sochi for the 2014 Games. PyeongChang is vying against Germany’s Munich and France’s Annecy this time.

    Munich of Pyeongchang

    France has held a winter olympics recently, Annecy is also close to Grenoble which has held the WO before

    Germany has not held an Olympics in a long time ( to my knowledge) while SK did have the Summer games in 1988. That said Russia is holding the 2014 WO, so it should be held outside of Europe for the next one

    So Pyeonchang would be my choice (assuming it has the weather to be able to hold the WO
