Annecy revamps its plan to host 2018 Olympics

Annecy revamps its plan to host 2018 Olympics

Annecy officials have revamped their plans to host the 2018 Winter Olympics after the IOC criticized the bid's spread-out venues.
Bid organizers said Thursday they have now decided that all competitions will take place in Annecy and Chamonix Mont-Blanc valley, "two sites that are less than an hour away from one another."
Edgar Grospiron, the former Olympic moguls champion who leads the Annecy bid, said "we clearly heard the IOC's message."
He says "we're therefore making intense efforts to adjust our concept and to optimize its compactness."
Annecy is competing against Munich and Pyeongchang, South Korea. The IOC will select the host city in July 2011.
