Annecy 2018's failed Olympic bid


The French Annecy failed bid for the 2018 Winter Games.The event will take place in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Pyeongchang was elected in Durban in 2011, receiving 63 votes in round one, following by Munich with 25 and Annecy with 7.

Eventually, this appears to be an excellent news for Annecy and its citizens, because of the financial and environmental cost of such an event. Public protest has killed off several Olympic bids, such as in Boston, Hamburg, Budapest and Innsbruck.
