Japan’s Sapporo announced plans to host the 2026 Winter Olympics, despite doubts about whether the Japanese Olympic Committee(JOC)would put forward a bid.


Fumio Ueda, the mayor of Sapporo, told a city assembly meeting that local residents, and those in Japan’s most northern island prefecture Hokkaido, were behind the 404.5 billion yen bid. Sapporo was the first Japanese city to host the Winter Games in 1972.


Kyodo News speculated that Japanese doubts about bidding were down to the number of Olympic events Asia are lined up to host in the coming years, believing it would be difficult to convince the IOC to return to the region if other continents bid.


South Korea’s Pyeongchang will host the 2018 Winter Games before Tokyo hosts the 2020 Summer Olympics. Kazakhstan’s Almaty and China’s Beijing are the only two bidders remaining for the 2022 Winter Olympics. (Reuters)
