The XX Olympic Winter Games will be held in Turin, Italy from February 10 to 26. Turin was chosen as the host of the Olympics in 1999, defeating Sion (Switzerland). This was just after the IOC had adopted a new style of voting due to corruption scandals surrounding the votes for the 1998 and 2002 Winter Olympics. Four other cities launched candidates, but were subsequently dropped by the Selection College after candidature presentations during the 109th IOC Session staged in Seoul in June 1999. These four cities that were cut by the Selection College were Helsinki, Finland; Poprad-Tatry, Slovakia; Zakopane, Poland; and Klagenfurt, Austria [1] (http://www.olympic.org/uk/games/torino/election_uk.asp).
