OIympic leaders meet Monday to decide which cities make the cut in the race for the 2022 Winter Olympics. It should be an easy choice.
After a series of voter rejections and city withdrawals, only three contenders are left standing — and the future of one remains uncertain.
The International Olympic Committee executive board is expected to keep all three remaining candidates: Almaty, Kazakhstan; Beijing; and Oslo.
Also on the agenda for the three-day meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland, is an update on Rio de Janeiro's delayed preparations for the 2016 Olympics, possible venue changes for the 2020 Tokyo Games and a review of IOC President Thomas Bach's plans for the future of the Olympic movement.
