I doubt that would have anything to do with it, it wouldn't be based in sport history or anything..

South Korea had the Seoul Olympics in 86 and the wc 5 years ago, they had to give it to us. Not to mention our rich sports history.
But they had lost to vancouver 2010 for three votes,they must be completely depressed by losing again for such few votes...4 now.

I think that was one advantage for us, the main one being is that we pull so much weight politically.

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" :confused: It might not end up being a very good olympics if thats what the deciding factor was :pp. Was the other factor the fact their flag looked nice? :D
