OIympic leaders meet Monday to decide which cities make the cut in the race for the 2022 Winter Olympics. It should be an easy choice.
After a series of voter rejections and city withdrawals, only three contenders are left standing and the future of one remains uncertain.
The International Olympic Committee executive board is expected to keep all three remaining candidates: Almaty, Kazakhstan; Beijing; and Oslo.
Also on the agenda for the three-day meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland, is an update on Rio de Janeiro's delayed preparations for the 2016 Olympics, possible venue changes for the 2020 Tokyo Games and a review of IOC President Thomas Bach's plans for the future of the Olympic movement.
