It figures. Katarina Witt, leads the Munich Winter Olympics 2018 presentation team

Katarina Witt, the Chair of Munich’s Winter Olympics 2018 bid team looked pretty satisfied with the presentation success of her team this week.

All the bidders for the Winter Olympics in 2018 were in London this week for SportAccord…the final opportunity for Munich, Annecy and PyeongChang to make their presentations to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) team.

Munich has a good chance of success after the Olympic inspection team, led by 1972 Munich Olympic veteran Gunilla Linberg of Sweden, declared themselves very pleased with the passion shown for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Munich, after their earlier presentations in March.

And Katarina Witt, gold medalist at the 1984 Sarajevo Winter Olympics and the 1988 Calgary Olympics,  certainly looked pretty pleased with the efforts of her presentation team who were asked to present all the themes of their bid, including finance, sports venues, government guarantees, transport, environment, security and marketing.

Weighty stuff indeed.

Munich is vying to become the first City to host both the Summer and Winter Olympics. If it does so, it will be the first time that Germany hosts a Winter Olympics.

All the presentation teams will learn the result when the IOC meets for its decisive vote in Durban, South Africa in July.
