[quote]Potential Bids:

Dayton, Ohio

Dayton's bid includes state-of-the-art facilities such as Welcome Stadium (opening/closing ceremonies), Ervin J. Nutter Center (figure skating), Hara Arena (ice hockey), Hobart Arena in nearby Troy (curling), and Mad River Mountain (downhill events). Luge, Skeleton and Bobsleigh events would be hosted on newly-constructed tracks adjacent to King's Island in Cincinnati that would later be converted for use at the Boomerang Bay waterpark. Ski jumping would be accomplished via innovative new "virtual jump" technology developed by Japan's Nintendo Corporation in association with the Air Force Systems Command's Virtual Reality Laboratory at nearby Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. Athletes would be housed in the currently-vacant Winters Bank Tower in downtown Dayton, and in the Drexel and Trotwood neighborhoods. Dayton has built a warchest of approximately $170 to help fund their bid, and are considered the front-runner of all American bids from cities nowhere near any mountains. [/quote]

In light of the following, perhaps the USOC should approach Dayton about hosting the 2022 Winter Games after all....


Davos, Munich, Stockholm, Krakow, and Lviv have withdrawn their bids. Today, Oslo is also pulling out. The finalist will be announced next year and the three remaining candidate cities are Almaty (Kazakhstan), and Beijing.  2018 (Pyeongchang) and 2020 (Tokyo) are already set, so I don't know if the IOC wants to go to East Asia three Olympics in a row.
