Beijing is celebrating.
Almaty is crying.
And Oslo is relieved.
On Friday, the International Olympic Committee chose Beijing to host the 2022 Winter Olympics.
Olympics officials meeting in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, voted for the Chinese capital over the only other bidder, Kazakhstan's Almaty.
There were originally six cities interested in staging the 2022 games but Lviv in Ukraine, Krakow in Poland, Stockholm in Sweden and Oslo in Norway, all pulled out.
And potential bids from Germany and Switzerland failed to materialize.
