Cities line up in the run for 1988 Olympic sites
Lausanne, Switzerland — The International Olympic Committee has received three bids each to stage the 1988 winter and summer Olympic Games. The winter event will be held at Calgary, Alberta; Cortina, d'Ampezzo, Italy; or Falun, Sweden. The summer games are sought by Nagoya, Japan; Melbourne; and Greece, which has asked to stage them as part of its offer of a permanent site for the games.
Candidate cities will receive a questionnaire to be filled in and returned to the IOC before March 1. The 89 committee members will then choose a site in October.
The 1984 Winter Olympics will be held in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia, and the summer games in Los Angeles.
