Well, since 2010 will be in Vancouver, and 2006 in Torino, I think 2014 should be in Asia, Pyeongchang would be great.

To be honest, i beleive these games are Pyeonchangs to loose. They came close to winning 2010, and the only Asian nation to host them has been Japan, so its SK's turn to host.

The short list will be
Pyeongchang
Sofia
Sochi
Salzburg
and either Jaca or Almaty.

Well in reality, most likely PyongChang is going to win, but I still vote for Sochi.

The Winter Olympics have traditionally favoured Europe, although Pyeongchang came very close to winning for 2010. They have a good shot at 2014.
