The International Olympic Committee might not get to decide what city will host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Apparently, no one wants the honor.
Oslo, Norway, is the latest city to drop its bid, announcing on Wednesday that the government will not financially support it. Cost of the games was estimated to be around $5.4 billion.
That brings the list of dropouts to four, including Lviv, Ukraine (citing political unrest), Stockholm, Sweden (no government support) and Krakow, Poland (referendum vote revealed 70 percent of residents weren't interested).
"It's important to get broad support for such an expensive project and there is not enough to carry through such an expensive project," Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg told NRK television. "Without enthusiasm, it's not natural to carry this through."
Before the official bidding period even started, residents in Switzerland and Germany also voted against pursuing bids.
