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

    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.

    France had it in the 1990s. Pretty recent.
    Germany has hosted summer games in 1936 and 1972 and both of those turned out pretty badly. No third chance.
    Pyongchang has tried twice before and I am sure South Korea will do a good job putting it on...

    Germany and France have both held winter Olympiads. As long as Pyeongchang is able to handle to event, I don't see why they shouldn't get it.

    As long as it isn't here I'm cool with whomever wants it.
