Games Winter Olympic
The International Olympic Committee chose Pyeongchang, South Korea, Wednesday to host the 2018 Olympic Winter Games.
The other two bid cities were Munich, Germany, and Annecy, France.
Pyeongchang narrowly failed in its bids for 2010 and 2014, losing by three votes to Vancouver, Canada, for last year's event and by four votes to Sochi, Russia, for the 2014 event.
South Korea has never hosted the Winter Games, though the capital city of Seoul hosted the 1988 Summer Games. Ref. CNN
