Barcelona Mayor Xavier Trias Behind Campaign To Host 2022 Winter Olympics

Barcelona Mayor Xavier Trias on Monday ratified Barcelona's decision to compete to host a Winter Olympics, according to the EFE. During a business meeting "dedicated to intelligent cities" that was organized by the Barcelona Chamber of Commerce and the Barcelona Chamber of French Commerce, Trias recognized that the project "might seem ridiculous" but he said that "we will do it." In January of '10, then-Mayor Jordi Hereu "surprisingly announced the intention to present Barcelona's candidacy to host the 2022 Winter Olympics and regain the 'Olympic dream' of '92" (EFE, 6/10).
