France Wants 2018 Games

From the Associated Press:

The French Olympic Committee agreed Wednesday to bid for the 2018 Winter Games. Grenoble, Nice and Annecy are among the expected contenders.
City officials have until mid-October to declare interest, and the French committee will select its candidate in March. The International Olympic Committee will choose the host city in 2011.
France hosted the Winter Games in Albertville in 1992. Paris lost recent bids to host the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics.
Among other cities that have announced bids or interest in 2018 are Pyeongchang, South Korea; Munich, Germany; Geneva; Tromsoe, Norway; and Reno-Tahoe, Nev.
