IOC set to announce short list for 2014

NUREMBERG (Reuters) – Seven cites will discover this week whether their planning and lobbying has paid off when the International Olympic Committee draws up its short list of candidate cities for the 2014 Winter Games. The IOC will announce its choice during an executive board meeting tomorrow at its headquarters in Switzerland. Bulgarian capital Sofia, Salzburg in Austria, South Korea’s Pyeongchang, Russia’s Black Sea resort of Sochi, Jaca in Spain, Almaty in Kazakhstan and Georgia’s Borjomi are all vying to host the Games. There is no limit to how many cities will make the cut.
