Norway government rejects 2022 Winter Olympics
OSLO, Norway (AP) --- Norway's ruling government party has voted against Oslo's
bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics.
Leading Conservative party members met Wednesday and voted against providing
financial backing for the bid.
The junior partner in the minority coalition voted against government support
Wednesday's vote means the Oslo bid will likely have to be dropped.
That would leave just two cities in the race: Beijing and Almaty, Kazazhstan.
Stockholm; Krakow, Poland; and Lviv, Ukraine, had pulled out earlier.
