Almaty has great chance to win race for hosting Olympic Games-2022

BEIJING. KAZINFORM - Almaty's bid for hosting the Olympic Games-2022 has great chances for victory, correspondent of "Inside the Games" major sports website Nick Butler told to a Kazinform correspondent.

"Almaty has great chances for winning the bid to host the Games in 2022. The city has a great potential for organization of the Olympic Games at a very high level," he said.

"I personally liked Almaty better as a candidate to host the games. I mean its architecture and nature. Beside, I think people would be more willing to visit a new city instead of going where they were in 2008," N. Butler stressed. However, Beijing is a favorite because if its experience in organization of major sports events like the Olympic Games.

In this June, representatives of Almaty and Beijing will deliver their reports to the members of the IOC in Lausanne. The Executive Committee of the IOC will decide on July 31 which city hosts the Olympiad in 2022.
