Olympic Notes: Int'l Paralympic Committee Extends Deal With Getty Images
The Int'l Paralympic Committee and Getty Images have signed a new four-year agreement to extend their partnership until the end of '16.

Oslo's bid to host the 2022 Olympics and Paralympics has submitted an application for governmental support and financial guarantees to stage the Winter Games, estimated to cost up to 30B NOK ($5.2B). The request from the Norwegian capital and the Norwegian Olympic and Paralympic Committee and Confederation of Sports (NIF), is the latest step in the bid process after it received backing from the City Council earlier this month (INSIDE THE GAMES, 6/20).
