Stockholm drops 2026 Olympic Bid

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Stockholm has pulled out of another Olympic bid, again due to uncertain financials. Swedish Socialists have long favoured spunking billions of Krona on the Olympic white elephant. Stockholm Mayor Karin Wankgard said "we have always thought that the Olympic Games are important for Stockholm's growth and development, Unfortunately, we are alone to have this position about the Olympic Games."

It seems the IOC is about as popular as a turd in a lucky dip these days.

Fortunately there are still cities like Paris and various one party states around the world who don't mind blowing other people's money on the summer and winter games.[/img]

@davidof, A shame for the Brits though, would have been nice and close... and it would have taken me the 9 years to save for a pint!

Maybe Hemel should bid? Very Happy

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

With global warming and peak-snowsports, it is hard to see the Winter Olympics lasting beyond the 21st century.

Living in Sweden I would have enjoyed a Winter Olympics. Although as a tax payer here I'm not sure I would have enjoyed the additional tax burden. I'm pretty sure I paid an Olympic levee on my council tax when I lived in London 10 years ago.
