German Olympic Sports President Thomas Bach Announces IOC Presidential Candidacy
Published May 10, 2013
MUNICH WORRIES: In Munich, Lisa Sonnabend reported Bach's candidacy "could affect Munich's bid to host the 2022 Winter Olympics." Should the IOC "elect a German president, Munich's chances would decline." The reason is the IOC "would most likely not vote twice for Germany." Munich, which lost in '11 against South Korea's PyeongChang to host the 2018 Winter Games, "will decide about a renewed Olympic bid" after the German federal and state elections in September (SÜDDEUTSCHE ZEITUNG, 5/9).
