South Korea to Host 2018 Winter Olympics
This just in—South Korea finished second to win the spot for the 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympics, but lo and behold, it's ON for the winter of 2018. The Winter Olympics have only been held in Asia twice before in Japan.
South Korea campaigned around a proposal to "expand winter sports in the lucrative Asian market," and it offered a huge budget of $1.5 billion for the games and up to $6 billion additionally for structural changes.
2018's far off, but we'll be watching!
