It was a close vote, but Beijing was just selected to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. The Chinese capital beat out Almaty, Kazakhstan 44 to 40 in an International Olympic Committee ballot today in Kuala Lumpur. The decision puts Beijing in the unique position of being the first city ever chosen to host both the Summer and Winter Olympic Games. Some of the factors that helped push the city over the top include its plan to reuse some of its existing infrastructure from the 2008 Summer Olympics like Herzog and de Meuron’s famous Bird’s Nest stadium and the award-winning Watercube, as well as talk of a new high-speed rail system that would benefit the area well after the games are over.
