Pyeonchang, South Korea is the host city for 2018 Winter Olympics. The city has failed two times in effort to host the games.
Pyeonchang's 1st bids was for 2010 Winter Olympics. In the 1st round the city received the most votes. Unfortunately, Pyeonchang was beaten by Vancouver, Canada in the 2nd round with only 3 votes difference.
The 2nd bids of the city was for 2014 Winter Olympics. Same as the previous trial, Pyeonchang received the most votes in the 1st round. Again, the city was beaten just by a few votes in the 2nd round. Pyeonchang 47 - 51 Sochi, Russia.
Unlike Salzburg, Austria which didn't send the bids for 2018 Winter Olympics for the 3rd trial, Pyeonchang still trying to host the games. They didn't give up after the 2nd failure which they lost to Sochi, Russia along with Salzburg. Because of their enthusiasm, they won the bids in a big majority after receiving 63 out of the 95 votes!
Actually, that's not the main topic for this entry ;) I just want to highlight about one of the promoter /ambassador of Pyeonchang's bids for 2018 Winter Olympic.
