Own the Podium chair says stage is set for a 2026 Calgary Winter Oympic bid
Own the Podium chair John Furlong joined Global Calgary Morning News Wednesday to talk about the road to Rio for Canadian athletes.
He weighed in with his thoughts on a Calgary bid for the 2026 Winter Games, saying there is a process underway right now and the Canadian Olympic Committee will launch a new bidding initiative.
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is inviting Canadian cites to showcase their ideas for a future Olympic bid.
Furlong said he fully expects Calgary will step up, and added the success of the 1988 Games will help the city’s chances.
