Italy’s Milan and Cortina d’Ampezzo will host 2026 Winter Olympics

Italian cities of Milan and Cortina d’Ampezzo will be hosting the 2026 Winter Olympics and Paralympics. Stockholm also was a contender to be named the host of the Games. The vote to determine the host of the 2026 Winter Olympics was held at the 134th session of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in Lausanne with IOC President Thomas Bach announcing the results of the vote.

Italy will host the Olympics for the fourth time. It is in the Alpine town of Cortina d’Ampezzo that the Soviet Union national team participated in the Winter Olympics for the first time in 1956. In 1960, Rome hosted the Summer Olympics, while Turin was the host city of the 2006 Winter Olympics.
