Almaty and Beijing to vie for 2022 Winter Olympic GamesOslo is set to withdraw from the race to host the 2022 Winter Olympics, with chiefs saying it is a “missed opportunity”.

Norway’s ruling party voted against funding the city’s bid, leaving Beijing and the Kazakh city of Almaty as the only two potential hosts.

Stockholm, Krakow and Lviv have already pulled out of the race.

The junior partner in Norway’s minority coalition government had already voted against funding Oslo’s bid in May.

Norway is due to host the Winter Olympic Youth Games in Lillehammer in 2016, BBC News reports.
