2026 Winter Olympics: Italy’s Milan-Cortina wins vote to host 2026 Winter Olympics; why do we care? Because it's good news for all Italian Olympic sports, including sailing

Monday, June 24, 2019

LAUSANNE, SUI (#1153) – Italy will host the 2026 Olympics in Milan and Cortina d’Ampezzo, taking the Winter Games to the Alpine country for the second time in 20 years. International Olympic Committee members voted for the long-favored Milan-Cortina bid over Stockholm-Are from Sweden that also included a bobsled track in Latvia. Milan-Cortina’s jubilant delegation broke into chants of “Italia! Italia!” when the result was announced. Italy last hosted in Turin in 2006, and the Alpine ski resort Cortina previously hosted the Winter Games in 1956. Sweden’s spirited late campaign effort was in vain, including the mayor of Stockholm appealing to voters from the stage by singing a lyric from Abba song ‘Dancing Queen’.
