With The 2014 Election Over, All Eyes Turn to 2016
Now that Sochi has been elected as the Host City for the XXII Olympic Winter Games, it must start to work towards putting on top quality Olympic Winter Games in 2014. As Sochi moves on to become the next host city of the Games and to create an Olympic Games Organising Committee, elsewhere around the world, attention will now turn to the race for 2016. Kicked-off on 16 May 2007, details of the candidature acceptance procedure and questionnaire in both English and French can now be found on the IOC’s official website. The first major deadline in the 2016 process is 13 September 2007, by which date the NOCs must inform the IOC of the name of any applicant city that they wish to propose.
