Whistler/Vancover Gets 2010 Winter Games

Vancouver was awarded the 2010 Winter Olympics on Wednesday, taking the games back to Canada for the first time since 1988. The International Olympic Committee selected the British Columbia city in a surprisingly tight contest with Pyeongchang, South Korea, which came within three votes of winning in the first round in what would have been a stunning upset. The third bid city, Salzburg, Austria, was eliminated in the first round of the secret ballot.
