The excitement of the South Korea Olympics and the success Canada is having will almost certainly lead to an announcement shortly after these games that Calgary will bid for the 2026 games.
A delegation of Calgary observers has watched not only the events but also seen the International Olympic Committee bend over backwards to lure the city into a bid for a 2nd games. Platitudes for Calgary have flowed since an I-O-C team visited the city last month with an offer to lop 900 million off the bid price.
With Canada off to flying start, already in double digits in medals and predicted to perhaps even win the medal race this time, you can guarantee shortly after these games that the feds and province will look to get on the bandwagon and get behind a bid.
Guess it’s time to look for that old O-C-O jacket and get in the game. It seems obvious that’s where we’re headed.
