Munich has officially entered the fray with their submission to host the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. Should Munich win the Summer 2018 Games, it would be the first time in the ancient history of the event that a city hosted both seasons.  Potential rivals to Germany for the games are Annecy, France, and Pyeongchang, South Korea.

The IOC vote for the winning city will take place in July of 2011.  The head of Germany’s national Olympic association, Thomas Bach told the press, “We are glad that Munich is going into the race with a compact, innovative and sustainable concept.”
