100 per cent wrong again,check the stats....in fact it was because the rich sport history that Russia got some of the votes compared to south korea and austria.

Check the russian presentation,four olympic champions plus the best athletes you ever see in the likes of fetissov tretiak and popov.

So they won the bid because, apparently, they have a "rich sports history" It might not end up being a very good olympics if thats what the deciding factor was p. Was the other factor the fact their flag looked nice?
