Jun 19, 2023

Sweden has emerged as the frontrunner to host the 2030 Winter Olympics in Stockholm. It would be the Nordic country’s first time hosting the Olympics since the 1912 Summer Games.

“Our preliminary study shows that Sweden has the opportunity, know-how, and will to arrange the Winter Games in 2030,” Swedish Olympic Committee president Hans von Uthmann said, according to the Associated Press. “The IOC has welcomed us to the next phase.”

Sweden’s bid is reportedly expected to use Are, a ski resort more than 300 miles north of Stockholm, and plans to host events in neighboring country Latvia for bobsled, luge and skeleton races.
