This month Norway became the fourth country to withdraw its bid to host the 2022 Winter Olympics.
Oslo’s withdrawal leaves only two cities in the race: Almaty, Kazakhstan and Beijing, China.
The main concern has been cost. This year’s Winter Games in Sochi were the most expensive ever, with a price tag of $51 billion.
Another significant factor for Oslo was reportedly the number of unusual and excessive demands by the International Olympic Committee says World Views Host Suzette Grillot.
