Washington, D.C., will host the Olympics this year, but not the Olympics for the foreseeable future
Washington, DC — In a move that will surprise few, D,C.
will host this year’s Winter Olympics.
The city is holding a vote to select a new host city.
In an unusual move, the vote was held Tuesday night and the results are not final.
The vote was the first time the city’s governing board had met since the 2018 Winter Olympics were cancelled amid a virus pandemic.
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has been working to find a new location for the 2020 Games.
She told reporters that she hopes the vote will be a victory for the city, and not the Games for the duration of the Games.
“We’re in this to win, not to sit around and watch the Olympics,” Bowser said.
Bowser, the first female mayor of the nation’s capital, said the city will hold its vote in the coming weeks.
We’re going to have a lot of choices, and I think the people of D.
Cs. have a right to choose,” Bowser told reporters.
More than a dozen other cities across the country have expressed interest in hosting the Winter Olympics, and some have already announced plans to host the Games in 2020.
A vote by D.P.”
