With the global campaign in its final weeks, the three cities vying for the 2018 Winter Olympics get the chance Wednesday to make their case directly to the IOC voters.
Bid leaders from Pyeongchang, South Korea; Munich; and Annecy, France, will be hoping to pick up the same kind of boost that sent Rio de Janeiro to victory in the race for the 2016 Summer Games.
More than 80 International Olympic Committee members are expected to attend the closed-door presentations and question-and-answer sessions at the Olympic Museum. On Thursday, the members can visit the bid cities' exhibition rooms at a Lausanne hotel.
The briefing comes less than two months before the IOC selects the 2018 host city in Durban, South Africa, on July 6.
